The Academic Research product track includes full-archive search, as well as increased access and other v2 endpoints and functionality designed to get more precise and complete data for analyzing the public conversation, at no cost for qualifying researchers. Since the Academic Research track includes specialized, greater levels of access, it is reserved solely for non-commercial use.
The Academic Research track was built to serve the needs of the academic research community via specialized, greater levels of access to public Twitter data for free. New and existing Twitter developers will need to complete an Academic Research application to gain access to this track.
In this application, we ask about: your credentials as an academic researcher, your research project, how you plan to use Twitter data, and how you plan to share your work. Below are the questions you will be asked in the application, so you know which materials you may need to prepare before getting started.
Once you submit your application for the Academic Research product track, you cannot edit these details. We recommend that you save the answers on your application, in case you want to reference these responses at a later date. The information you provide on this application is just between us, and will not be shared with anyone outside of Twitter.
Our teams carefully review each application to make sure every project adheres to our Twitter Developer Agreement and Policy, including our terms for non-commercial use. This process and information enables us to grant academic researchers privileged access and functionality necessary to do their work, while protecting the security and privacy of people on Twitter and the developer platform.
