What data do we collect?
We collect public available data from Twitter from a small subset of users. The following data is collected:
- Twitter user object (Details: https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/tweets/data-dictionary/overview/user-object)
- Twitter tweet object (Details: https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/tweets/data-dictionary/overview/tweet-object)
- Twitter Friends ids (Details: https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/accounts-and-users/follow-search-get-users/api-reference/get-friends-ids)
- Twitter Favorites list (Details: https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/tweets/post-and-engage/api-reference/get-favorites-list)
In order to report on important topics such as the importance of gender, ethnicity, etc. in the public discourse, we will enrich the Twitter user object with metadata. This will be done computationally, eg. gender from name, ethnicity from facial recognition, etc. We will never display these metadata on an individual level - only anonymized in aggregated reports.
How do we collect your data?
We collect the data using Twitter's official API (https://help.twitter.com/en/rules-and-policies/twitter-api). No private data whatsoever is collected. No other sources than Twitter is used.
How will we use your data?
The data will be used to analyse and present a network graph of a small subset of users.
The following information will be released:
- A ranked list of the most important people using Twitter (where "importance" is defined as "being listened to" by primarily politicians and journalists).
- Weekly update on important changes to ranked list (rising, newcomers, etc.).
- Reports on potential correlations between ranking and demographics variables such as gender, ethnicity, etc.
- More to come
How do we store your data?
Data is stored on our secure server located in Franfurt, Germany
