Coronavirus Twitter Data: A collection of COVID-19 tweets with automated annotations
This dataset contains tweets related to COVID-19. The dataset contains Twitter ids, from which you can download the original data directly from Twitter. Additionally, we include the date, keywords related to COVID-19 and the inferred geolocation. Check detailed information at http://twitterdata.covid19dataresources.org/index.
Demographics Race/Ethnicity Training Data
Our paper, “Using Noisy Self-Reports to Predict Twitter User Demographics,” produced a dataset of Twitter users whose profile descriptions may self-report their race or ethnicity. We used this dataset to train classifiers for these demographic labels, and showed that models trained on the collected data perform better on gold standard survey data than models trained only on crowd-sourced data. We distribute the trained models.
Civil Unrest on Twitter (CUT)
Tweets labeled with information related to protest, riots and civil unrest on Twitter. Based on Justin Sech, Alexandra DeLucia, Anna L Buczak, Mark Dredze.

Vaccine Related English Tweets from the United States: 2016 to 2018
A list of tweet ids sampled from the 1% feed that contain vaccine related keywords. All tweets are in English (according to the Twitter provided metadata) and have been geolocated to the United States (using Carmen).
Annotated Gun Control/Rights Tweets
This dataset contains 50k (automatically) annotated tweets about gun control and gun rights. It was used in our paper: Adrian Benton, Mark Dredze. Using Author Embeddings to Improve Tweet Stance Classification. EMNLP Workshop on Noisy User-generated Text (W-NUT), 2018.
Annotations for "Weaponized Health Communication"
This contains 10k tweet annotations for our paper: Weaponized Health Communication: Twitter Bots and Russian Trolls Amplify the Vaccine Debate
CLPsych Shared Task
The Computational Linguistics and Clinical Psychology (CLPsych) workshop has hosted shared and unshared tasks for several years. In 2015 the shared task used data from Twitter users who state a diagnosis of depression or post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) along with demographically-matched community controls. The shared task provided an apples-to-apples comparisons of various approaches to modeling language relevant to mental health from social media. The shared task consisted of three binary classification experiments: (1) depression versus control, (2) PTSD versus control, and (3) depression versus PTSD.

These files contain the keywords we use to collect and identify health related tweets.
Health Twitter Annotations
These annotations were created for the paper:
Michael J. Paul, Mark Dredze. A Model for Mining Public Health Topics from Twitter. Technical Report -, Johns Hopkins University, 2011.
The annotations label tweets as they relate to health. The annotations are described on page 2 of the paper. The file includes tweet ids which you can use to download the data.
Influenza Twitter Annotations
These annotations were created for the paper:
