Twitter as a Broadcaster
Twitter might be considered a broadcaster. Individual tweets are individual broadcasts, with a UTC timestamp. Red Hen is interested in establishing an all-but-automatic way of distributing tweets into its dataset in such a way that they could be considered in the context of all the other broadcasts. Doing so would require establishing design specifications for files, filenames, file locations, and data structures inside files. Red Hen is working with the Oxford Internet Institute on this task, and process is being documented on the Tweet Pipeline page.
