“Altmetrics14: expanding impacts and metrics” (#altmetrics 14) was an ACM Web Science Conference 2014 Workshop that took place on June 23, 2014 in Bloomington, Indiana, United States, between 10:00AM and 17:50 local time.
I have uploaded to figshare a dataset of 1758 Tweets tagged with #altmetrics14 (case not sensitive).
The dataset contains an archive of 1758 Tweets published publicly and tagged with #altmetrics14 between Mon Jun 02 17:41:56 +0000 2014 and Wed Jul 16 00:48:38 +0000 2014.
During the day of the workshop, 1294 Tweets tagged with #altmetrics14 were collected.

The third sheet in the file contains 1294 Tweets tagged with #altmetrics14 collected during the day of the workshop.
The usual fair warnings apply:
Only users with at least 2 followers were included in the archive. Retweets have been included. An initial automatic deduplication was performed but data might require further deduplication.
Please note that both research and experience show that the Twitter search API isn’t 100% reliable. Large Tweet volumes affect the search collection process. The API might “over-represent the more central users”, not offering “an accurate picture of peripheral activity” (González-Bailón, Sandra, et al. 2012). It is therefore not guaranteed this file contains each and every Tweet tagged with #altmetrics14 during the indicated period, and is shared for comparative and indicative educational and research purposes only.
Please note the data in this file is likely to require further refining and even deduplication. The data is shared as is. This dataset is shared to encourage open research into scholarly activity on Twitter. If you use or refer to this data in any way please cite and link back using the citation information above.
