    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;The Pushshift Telegram Dataset&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The dataset consists of three files:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Accounts.ndjson:&amp;nbsp;&lt;/em&gt;Provides data for 2.2M Telegram users that were active in the channels we crawled.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Channels.ndjson:&amp;nbsp;&lt;/em&gt;Provides data for 28K Telegram channels that we crawled.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Messages.ndjson: &lt;/em&gt;Provides data for 317M Telegram messages that were posted by 2.2M Telegram users in 28K Telegram channels.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Each file is a newline delimited json (ndjson) file that includes a json object with the data for each account/channel/message. The format of each object is according to the Telethon API (&lt;a href="https://docs.telethon.dev/en/latest/"&gt;https://docs.telethon.dev/en/latest/&lt;/a&gt;), which is a Python interface for Telegram&amp;#39;s API.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
