Is big data always better data? This question kicked off a live twitter Q&A with Anabel Quan-Haase and Luke Sloan spotlighted in this latest issue of SAGE’s monthly big data newsletter. In addition to discussing the limitations of big data, the pair discuss the practicalities of research, such as the skillsets and tools required for conducting social media research. The conference where they held their Twitter chat, the International Communications Association, also saw the launch of The SAGE Handbook of Social Media Research Methods, co-edited by Quan-Hase and Sloan.
