Dear Maria Eleonora, I have collected a 1.2 million tweets corpus using the package TwitteR ( http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/twitteR/) and the statistical software R (http://www.r-project.org). It works fine even with the new privacy settings. Best, Stefania Spina

------------------------------- Dear ListMembers,

I'd like to create a corpus of Italian twits, but searching online I found out that it is not possible anymore because Twitter has changed its privacy settings.

Has any of you tried to build a Twitter corpus and how?

Any suggestion will be much appreciated (considering that I am not a programmer, though).
