Abstract

This is a dataset of tweet identifiers remembering the life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Notes

This dataset contains 3,825,716 identifiers for tweets that were sent with the keyword RBG between September 10 and September 22, 2020. RBG are the initials of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who died on September 18, 2020. #RBG was a popular hashtag that was used to celebrate her life.

The tweet identifiers were collected from the Twitter Search API using the tool twarc, which was run September 19 to September 22. The collected JSON was turned into the tweet identifier dataset using jq. The tweet identifiers can be turned into JSON data or "hydrated" using tools such as twarc (https://github.com/docnow/twarc) or Hydrator (https://github.com/docnow/hydrator).
