Scholarly and Other Published Mentions of DiscoverText

This list is drawn from Google Scholar and submissions from our users as they get published. It represents a very wide interdisciplinary swath of the academic research industry. The titles suggest a burgeoning new scholarly interest in accessing Twitter data for research and educational purposes. We currently provide researchers with a simple method to access the Twitter Search API. Many of these articles reflect four years of access to the Gnip Premium Twitter API and the full history of Twitter (minus the deletions via) our decomissioned product Sifter. More than 100 authenticated reviewers report that our search, filter, de-duplication, clustering, human coding, measurement, and machine-learning tools continue to be useful whether you are teaching or researching @twitter or other text data.
