Twitter allows the approved developers and researchers to study the public conversation about COVID-19 in real time to help them track the spread of the virus. In a blog post, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said the conversations taking place on the platform are highly insightful and have the potential to help the world better understand the COVID-19 pandemic, Mashable reported.

Tens of millions of tweets created by users on the platform are made available to researchers and developers for free. The data will help investigate the spread of the disease, understand the spread of misinformation, crisis management, relief and communication within communities.

It will also help develop machine learning to help the scientific community answer key questions about COVID-19. The company also plans to review access requests to ensure they support the public good.

Applicants should describe in detail the security measures they intend to provide for the protection and safety of persons who will be represented in the data. (ANI)
