Tragedy in Norway: 24h of tweets – a dataset


I found out of the horrible Norway attacks an hour after the bombings in twitter. The shootings and extent of the murders were revealed a while later. Usually I gather the tweets for network visualization with NodeXL‘s script, but this time I offer only the dataset for researchers.

The data is 24 hours of tweets gathered every 5 minutes containing the word “oslo” from 4.35 PM (CET) Friday 22nd July. I cannot guarantee that every tweet is in this dataset. The file format is GraphML (you can use text editor to find the term “Tooltip” where the content of the tweet is).


Let me know if you can make use of the data.
