If you arrived at this page by following a link from a tweet, thank you for clicking! First, here are some answers to questions you might have, and then at the bottom of the page is a link to the survey. Your participation is valuable and appreciated!
(Also, if you came across this page some other way besides a link on Twitter, please do not complete the survey, so that our recruitment methods are consistent. Thanks!)
1. Why did you reply to my tweet?
We are using tweet replies as a means for recruiting participants for this survey. Your tweet was chosen at random or potentially at random based on a hashtag. Our goal is to find people who are posting lots of different types of content on Twitter.
2. What is this survey about?
We want to find out how people feel about other people using their tweets in different ways – for example, researchers who scrape large numbers of tweets to analyze.
3. Why should I participate?
Your participation will help make this a better study, and ensure that your ideas are heard. We’re also offering $100 Amazon gift cards for two participants chosen at random.
4. How are you going to use my data?
For this study, we are ONLY collecting whatever information you provide for us in the survey. We will not visit your profile page or even record your Twitter handle. You don’t even have to give us your name. And you only have to provide your email address if you want to have a chance to win the gift card. (Email addresses will also be stored separately and not connected to your survey responses.)
5. Who are you?
The lead researcher behind this project is Casey Fiesler, an assistant professor in the Department of Information Science at University of Colorado Boulder. You can find out a lot more about me by poking around this website, if you like.
6. I have another question!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to answer it for you.
