I am looking for a dataset of date covariates that could cause a spike in Twitter data. For example, any major news event or holiday such as black friday. Anyone know where this might exist?

  • I think in the other direction - use Twitter spikes to recognize major news events. – philshem Jan 23 '15 at 20:11
  • Do you have any geographical region of interest? Doing this on an international level is a pretty monumental task. – philshem Jan 23 '15 at 20:14
  • Just the united states. – lulu Jan 26 '15 at 21:01
