Altmetric noted with interest the recent changes in Twitter ownership and is observing ongoing developments with the platform closely. 

In the meantime, we will continue to track attention to mentions of academic research outputs shared on Twitter. Twitter is still one of the major platforms used by academics globally and our plan for now is to continue to track it as we always have.

We are closely monitoring the situation in terms of Twitter coverage and usage, and currently working on a number of scenarios as to how we might adjust to any developments.

If you have any questions about how Altmetric tracks Twitter, see our solution here or get in touch with us:
