Description

Social Media content is of increasing interest in Social Science research. Blog histories and Timelines can provide insights as to how exposure to social media itself might be influencing the individual.

 In this free webinar, organised by the UK Data Service, we will look at some of the tools available to collect and reconstruct a user's Twitter timeline, not just what they Tweet, but also what they see. We will outline how you can go about getting the necessary Twitter developers account and the API credentials to perform these tasks. We will then demonstrate using Python and the Twitter API how to collect a Timeline and reconstruct what the user sees.
