Twitter currently has around 335 million active users. And with each user comes data.

Our panel, including Twitter research expert Dr Wasim Amhed, media and digital literacy researcher Dr Jennifer Jones, and Deputy Director of The Social Data Science Lab Dr Luke Sloan, takes a long hard look at social media, analysing sites live to show how much metadata is available and what it can be used for.
