Priego, Ernesto (2014): Internet Librarian International ’14. A #ili2014 Twitter Archive. figshare.

Internet Librarian International 2014 (#ili2014) took place between 20 and 22 October 2014 in the Olympia Centre, London, UK.

The Tweets contained in the file were collected using Martin Hawksey’s TAGS 6.0. This file contains 3 sheets.

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” (Gonzalez-Bailon, Sandra, et al. 2012). It is not guaranteed this file contains each and every Tweet tagged with #ili2014 during the indicated period, and is shared for comparative and indicative educational and research purposes only.

Please note the data in the file is likely to require further refining and even deduplication. The data is shared as is. The contents of each Tweet are responsibility of the original authors. This dataset is shared to encourage open research into scholarly activity on Twitter.
