Gnip and Twitter Bringing Social Data to Academic Researchers

http://blog.gnip.com/twitter-data-grants/

>From the Gnip blog:

"What if the next generation of data scientists could have access to social
​ ​
data for their research? And what if we could help increase the quantity
​ ​
and quality of published research using social data? Exploring what might
​ ​
be possible has led to an exciting new collaboration between Twitter and
​ ​
Gnip. Today, we're announcing the pilot of the Twitter Data Grants program,
​ ​
a new initiative designed to support research and fuel innovation in our
​ ​
industry."

On a related note:

I have taken on the task of setting up 1-2 academic panels for the next Big
​ ​
Boulder conference. If you are an academic
​ ​
doing work with Twitter data and
​ ​
you are interested in
​ ​
potentially appearing on a Big Boulder panel, please
​ ​
send me a brief synopsis of your project and a link to any web-based
materials about it.
