*Social Data & Tools: Prizes for Academics*

We felt inspired by the recent #DataGrants experiment sponsored by Twitter
that generated more than 1,300 proposals from 60 countries and resulted in
six extremely interesting awards. One thing is clear: many more grants of
social data licenses are needed to fuel academic research. Texifter is
sponsoring social data and tools prizes for academics as a simple contest
with 12 winners a month this summer. In addition to social data access, we
understand that many academic researchers also need “point & click”
web-based tools to simplify the data access and management tasks involving
social media APIs and jSON. To learn how to enter: http://bit.ly/1pGuUJo

The first dozen winners were selected from June entries. You can read about
the winners' projects here: http://bit.ly/1m9v1xU

We will select another dozen prize winners at the end of July. It takes
five minutes to enter by creating a free Historical Twitter estimate and
submitting a CV.
