Tweet IDs filtered from Twitter streaming based on the keywords dorian, hurricane, hurricane dorian, hurricanedorian

IDs collected with Social Feed Manager . Twitter terms of service prevent sharing Twitter data, but do allow for the sharing of IDs (an unlimited number for academic purposes). These IDs can be feed into the Twitter API by an individual and the tweet data returned.  This process is referred to as hydrating

Summaries of the hydrated tweets as well as sample code for hydrating tweets and analysis calculation is given in this repository: with more changes and updates on the way. These tweets are utilized to research underlying patterns in the way that communities respond in aggregate to natural disasters such as this hurricane.
