The workshop will cover the ethical and operational issues associated with linking Twitter and survey data. We will begin by thinking about what new and exciting opportunities this new form of linked data provides. We will then move on to the challenges associated with designing, collecting, analyzing, publishing and sharing this type of linked data. Drawing on recent experiences of three UK studies (British Social Attitudes 2015, the Understanding Society Innovation Panel 2017 (IP10) and the NatCen Panel July 2017) we will explore issues around informed consent, disclosure, security and archiving. The workshop will be interactive with a focus on participant engagement and dialogue.
