Collaborative Study to Diminish Abuse on Twitter

Disclosed Personal Data Disclosed Non-Personal Data


Twitter shared aggregated, anonymized data from its platform with researchers at MIT to enable a study of abuse on the platform. More specifically, the collaboration aimed to test whether having explicit platform rules and norms influences how people behave on social media. The project depends on several legal agreements setting up a basis for data sharing. The research will be submitted for academic peer review and published in an academic journal.
