Twitter Flu Annotations

Here you can download the annotated data we used for training influenza classifiers described in the paper below. This is only the annotated training data (about 10K tweets), and not the full set of Twitter data.

Also note that this dataset does not contain the content of the tweets. The tweet IDs are included, which you can use to download the tweet content using the Twitter API.
