The Revolution Will Not Be Archived

Download to read offline

If twitter is the "fi rst draft of history", then we should be doing a better job of preserving it. For the one
year anniversary of the Egyptian revolution (2012) we revisited a sample of the shared social media content and found nearly 11% missing from the current web, and only 20% available in public web archives. Spurred by this, we sampled tweets for ve other culturally important events from 2009-2012 and found similar rates for archiving and loss.
