Data Set Women's March

Analyzing How the Women’s March Tweeted

Researchers at George Washington University have published a dataset of 7,275,228 tweet identifiers (tweet ids) for Twitter posts related to the Women’s March protest, which took place in 673 locations around the world on January 21, 2017. The researchers compiled all tweets during the period of December 18, 2016 and January 23, 2017 that used hashtags related to the demonstration, including #WhyIMarch, #WomensMarch, and #WMW. Twitter’s policies prevent the sharing of the tweets themselves, but the tweet ids can be used to identify all of the tweets that have been deleted or are from accounts that have since been made private.
