Fabian Pfaffenberger evaluates the scientific usefulness of Twitter by considering several common survey and analysis methods. Twitter has become a popular source for studies, although the short message service is only suitable for research to a limited extent: Limited representativeness, limited data availability and low data quality reduce the scientific benefit. Nevertheless, Twitter is increasingly becoming the focus of science due to its social and media relevance and the mass of freely available data.
