The Last Twitter Census

The newest VOX-Pol Publication, The Last Twitter Census by JM Berger, is now available on the VOX-Pol website. This open-access report compares two large random samples of Twitter accounts that tweet in English: one taken just before Elon Musk acquired Twitter in October 2022, and one taken three months later, in January 2023. It also examines several related datasets collected during the period following the acquisition, a period in which, the study found, new accounts were created at a record-breaking pace.
