The 2nd Twitter Mixed Days conference will be held in the Cairnes School of Business & Economics at the National University of Ireland Galway, Ireland on April 19th and 20th 2016. The conference is intended to foster collaboration and to build community. The increasing availability of massive datasets from the Twitter platform is revolutionising the scientific study of a variety of phenomena in fields as diverse as Sociology, Computer Science, Business, Law, Crisis Management, Psychology and others. Yet, while many important advances have taken place in these different communities, the dialog between researchers using Twitter data across disciplines is only beginning. The purpose of Twitter for Research is to bring together leading researchers in order to lay the foundation for ongoing relationships and to build a lasting multidisciplinary research community.


Day 1 (April 19th); Workshop on Extracting Business Value from Twitter Data. This workshop is designed to arm participants with the knowledge to extract real business value from the the Twitter platform and the data it produces.
