Ethics

During this research I have been collecting large amount of data (or in fancier terms Big Data) including personal data such as names, locations, links to social media accounts, comments.

Although all data was openly available on the web at the time of collection, and in few cases explicitly published under a Creative Common license, I make every effort to prevent the identification of users based on the analyses published on this site (with the notable exception of public figures such as elected representatives).
