Readability of crisis communications


If you use this data, please cite:

Irina Temnikova, Carlos Castillo, Sarah Vieweg: The Case for Readability of Crisis Communications in Social Media. In Social Web for Diaster Management (SWDM), 18-22 May 2015. Florence, Italy.

This data was annotated by crowdsourcing workers from platform Crowdflower.


  • The instructions.txt file includes the instructions shown to annotators.
  • The labels.csv file includes the text of the tweet and the assessment from the annotators.

Note 1: some tweets appear twice in the file (even with different labels), as the tweets were also used as test questions. Both labelings of the same tweet are independent.

Note 2: unfortunately, tweet-ids were converted to 32-bit integer and hence truncated 3 or 4 decimal places.
