COVID-19 UK Social Media Dataset for Public Health Research: Methodology for Collection and Processing

Richard Plant

We present a benchmark database of public social media postings from the United Kingdom related to the Covid-19 pandemic for academic research purposes, along with some initial analysis, including a taxonomy of key themes organised by keyword. This release supports the findings of a research study funded by the Scottish Government Chief Scientist Office that aims to investigate social sentiment in order to understand the response to public health measures implemented during the pandemic.
