Twitter invests in MIT lab focused on online social movements | John Ribeiro | ComputerWorld.com

Twitter invests in MIT lab focused on online social movements | John Ribeiro | ComputerWorld.com | Alchemy of Business, Life & Technology | Scoop.it

Twitter is investing US$10 million in a lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to build platforms for online collaboration by people on civic and political issues.

The Laboratory for Social Machines (LSM) set up by MIT Media Lab will have access to Twitter's real-time, public stream of tweets as well as archives, dating back to the first tweet on the social network, MIT said.

Decentralized digital networks have been more suited to disrupting old social and political hierarchies than building the systems to replace them, according to MIT Media Lab. The lab will be exploring the potential of social networks "to remake the public sphere" by providing tools for institutions and individuals to collaborate on social problems, it added.

The data from Twitter will be provided by data analysis provider Gnip, which was acquired in April by Twitter. The firm has been analyzing and selling to clients the so-called "firehose" of Twitter data. MIT will sift through the tweets for patterns and connections, using techniques like large-scale analysis of content in real-world contexts and investigating interaction patterns in relevant social systems.

The social networking company introduced in February a pilot project called Twitter Data Grants through which it would give its data to select international research institutions.
