During the initial phases of a controversy, the program known as GGAuto Blocker was created under the false pretense of being a tool to combat online harassment.(F2) However the true intention of the tool is not to prevent harassment, but rather create a list of targets that they identify as harassers simply by following or associating with a person under the hashtag.(I’m into redundancy, especially when it comes to backing up data.) Anybody can export the collected tweets from Twapperkeeper as a compressed file, but I’m also posting here my own archives.The first is an XML file of the over 1,600 tweets marked with the #MLA09 hashtag, dating from November 28, 2009 all the way to just about midnight on December 31, 2009: #MLA09 (I’ve zipped the xml file for easier downloading).Second is an Excel version of the file, which has stripped away some of the XML tags, but is a more reader-friendly document: MLA09There is also a Google Docs version of the file: I hope people find these archives useful.You can easily create some superficial data visualizations, such as the word cloud pictured above [larger version], but I imagine some more sophisticated analysis can be done as well.
