Social media and microblogging service Twitter announced that scientists have developed special tools for easier access to research on Covid-19.
New API for scientists
Thanks to these tools shared on Twitter, which will make tweets about Covid-19 easier to find, scientists will be able to access other scientists’ work, people’s comments about symptoms, complaints, without having to grapple with other tweets.
Researchers will be able to instantly access millions of tweets about the topic with these new tools. Researchers will also be able to develop their own search software using the API of this new tool.
