This is the updated dataset for the publication "Large Scale Crowdsourcing and Characterization of Twitter Abusive Behavior". Antigoni-Maria Founta, Constantinos Djouvas, Despoina Chatzakou, Ilias Leontiadis, Jeremy Blackburn, Gianluca Stringhini, Athena Vakali, Michael Sirivianos and Nicolas Kourtellis. International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media (ICWSM), 2018.

The dataset provided here includes an updated version of the original dataset, with ~100k tweets annotated using the CrowdFlower platform:

  • hatespeech_labels.csv: contains ~100k rows, where every row is consisted of a unique Tweet ID and its associated majority annotation

UPDATE: It has come to our understanding that a number of the tweets are not available anymore for download on Twitter. Therefore, under request, we can provide one more file with the full 100k tweet text and their associated majority labels. The tweets are shuffled so that there is no connection between tweet IDs and texts (in order to be aligned with the T&C of Twitter). To obtain the file contact the authors through email.
