from another angle:
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is seeking a
“social media analytic tool” that will give the government access to
“full Twitter historical data,” according to a solicitation released on Tuesday.
The agency is seeking feedback for a “possible future acquisition to
provide near real time social media analysis.” HHS said it wants to use
the tool for “ongoing monitoring” of public health issues.
HHS provides a long list of requirements, including “access to
real-time social media posts,” and “access to full Twitter firehose.”
The agency requires an archive that goes back at least five years of
“full Twitter historical data.” The government will also need “access to
multiple account log-ins,” “real-time alerting,” the “ability to
construct lengthy Boolean searches,” and a function that can filter
search results based on the location of a Twitter user.
Gee, I wonder what 'public health issues' they'll be most interested in monitoring?
