Get INSIGHTS into social media in a few clicks with NodeXL

News & updates from the Social Media Research Foundation - 2023 - 1

Featured NodeXL Network

The featured network shows a snapshot of discussions around the Twitter search term Twitter API (research OR academic OR academics). Twitter has communicated an intent to make changes to the Twitter API data access policy and pricing.  These changes have not been clearly communicated and have been delayed multiple times.  However, the most recent news suggests dramatic changes and reduction in data access at the same time price for access is more than 400 times the initially proposed cost of USD$100 per month.  Recent news suggests monthly costs for limited access to Twitter data will run $42,000 per month. If correct, this policy change will remove almost all scholarly analysis of the Twitter platform. The NodeXL Graph Gallery report for discussions around can be found here and the corresponding NodeXL Pro INSIGHTS report here.
