German April 2013 Twitter Corpus

This corpus contains a snapshot of German-language Twitter posts from the month of April, 2013. The posts have been automatically collected and filtered by language (see paper). The collection method guarantees a near-complete (>90%) sample of all tweets in German sent during that time period.

How to Use

Because of terms of service restrictions, only the tweet ids can be provided. They have been extracted using twarc. You can rehydrate the tweets (= reconstruct the tweet text and metadata) using the Twitter API. Twarc provides functionality for this as well (rehydrate).

You can’t perform that action at this time.
