  2. DATA COLLECTION AND ETHICAL ISSUES THAT ARISE DURING TWITTER RESEARCH

    Data available through API may be limited IRBs may not fully understand Twitter research Need to filter data for desired users (e.g., random, by language, type of user) Many studies violate the Twitter TOS
  3. …LEAVE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER AS A COMMUNITY 1. How

    should we report measures taken to account for limitations in data from the Twitter API? 2. What are best practices for sampling and filtering data and for reporting these processes? 3. How can we account for violations of the Twitter TOS when conducting our research? 4. What are best practices for Twitter privacy research when considering the ethics of our research?
