About Twitter Followers
The Twitter Followers dataset by Quiver Quantitative tracks the number of followers on the official Twitter pages of US-listed companies. The data covers 2,000 equities, starts in May 2020, and is delivered on a daily frequency. This dataset is created by scraping the number of Twitter followers from the official Twitter page of the security.
This dataset depends on the US Equity Security Master dataset because the US Equity Security Master dataset contains information on splits, dividends, and symbol changes.
About Quiver Quantitative
Quiver Quantitative was founded by two college students in February 2020 with the goal of bridging the information gap between Wall Street and non-professional investors. Quiver allows retail investors to tap into the power of big data and have access to actionable, easy to interpret data that hasn’t already been dissected by Wall Street.
