CSCAR Workshop: Introduction to the Twitter API

In connection with #UMTweetCon2019, CSCAR is offering an exclusive "Introduction to the Twitter API" workshop. This workshop is designed for those who are interested in getting started with their own research and analytics of Twitter data. The workshop introduces workflows for using the Twitter API for programmers and non-programmers alike. For non-programmers, we’ll be using the Postman software. For programmers, we’ll demonstrate the same process in Python. We will also discuss some of the limitations of the Twitter API and cover how to parse the JSON data retrieved from it. Register for the Twitter API workshop on the CSCAR website.

The conference is sponsored by the Institute for Social Research, the Center for Political Studies, the Michigan Institute for Data Science, the Social Science and Social Media Collaborative, and the #Parenting Rackham Interdisciplinary Group.
