The #sxswedu Twitter Archive (for your data mining pleasure)


I am a huge fan of learning from others, and I think one of the best ways to learn from #sxswedu is to look through all of the tweets. Unfortunately, they go by too fast to glean much of anything out of them other than people seem to be having a good time.

So, I created a twitter archive for every tweet using the #sxswedu hashtag. Once an hour, it pulls in new tweets and displays them in a summary, a dashboard, and in their raw form.

Here is the link to the archive:

Feel free to use these tweets however you see fit, but please share what you do with them, as I would love to see what uses others make of this data.

Also, if you want to create your own twitter archives, here are the instructions and template doc. However, if you want to create an archive as large as #sxswedu, you will need to import the scripts and the spreadsheet into “new sheets.”
