Introduction to the Twitter API

By |
This workshop is designed for those who are interested in getting started with their own research and analytics of Twitter data. The workshop introduces workflows for using the Twitter API for programmers and non-programmers alike. For non-programmers, we’ll be using the Postman software. For programmers, we’ll demonstrate the same process in Python. We will also discuss some of the limitations of the Twitter API and cover how to parse the JSON data retrieved from it.

This workshop accompanies the #UMTweetCon2019 conference on the use of Twitter data in research and analytics at the University of Michigan on May 23, 2019. Participants interested in attending the workshop are invited to also attend the #UMTweetCon2019 panel and poster sessions to learn more about ongoing Twitter data research at U-M. More information about the conference program and how to register is available here.”
