UK-EU referendum Twitter data

Dataset

Abstract

This data collection consists of Tweet IDs collected on the UK-EU referendum between September 2015 and August 2016. The aim, during this fellowship, was to provide a unique trans-disciplinary contribution to the debate about the relationship between the UK and the European Union. The outputs from this fellowship will contribute to the programme's focus on attitudes towards the EU, including intra-UK regional variations in attitudes to the EU. Innovative interdisciplinary data sources on social and political attitudes to the EU and their drivers will be mined and analysed. The findings will be made accessible to policy-makers, political elites and to the wider public using novel applications of social media, direct collaboration with the mainstream media, and a public art installation as well as more traditional user engagement strategies. On a smaller scale, to keep coverage of what will be a rapidly shifting landscape current, some innovative ongoing research will be conducted.
