Documenter Twitter : défis et méthodes pour la constitution de corpus de tweets

Abstract : In the last few years, the micro-blogging platform Twitter took a central place in the media space. Archiving the messages (or tweets) that are published on this platform is therefore an important challenge for researchers but also for the society itself. However, to be effective, this process needs to take into account some of the specificities of the platform and its contents. In this article, we analyze the existing data collection methods to assess what kind of data they do capture and what kind they do not. We also investigate the temporal evolution of tweets after their publication and propose methods to record such changes. Through the definition of this data collection process, we also question the documentary nature of tweets and the obstacles that limit their study.
