Analyzing the Tweets Around “Brexit” Referendum

Dr. Ernesto Priego is doing some analysis of tweeting about the “Brexit” referendum. “As the date to vote in person approaches, I collected and shared a dataset of tweets published by the official Leave campaign Twitter account, @vote_leave, between 12/06/2016 09:06:22 – 21/06/2016 09:29:29 BST. The dataset contains 1,100 tweets. I did a quick text analysis of the Tweets themselves to get a quick insight into the most frequent terms and collocates in the corpus, and also looked at the tweets’ sources (the services used to publish the Tweets, i.e. the Twitter Web Client, Buffer, the Twitter iPhone app).”
