140kit collects data using it’s own account via Twitter’s Streaming API. As such, pursuant to section I 4. a. of Twitter’s Developer Terms of service, we do not provide syndicated data, and do not “sell, rent, lease, sublicense, redistribute, or syndicate access to the Twitter API or Twitter Content” In any sense. What this service aims to do is provide analytical services surrounding Twitter data, which is outlined in Section 2 of the Terms of Service: "You may use the Twitter API and Twitter Content in connection with the products or services you provide (your “Service”) to search, display, analyze, retrieve, view, and submit information to or on Twitter."
As a result of these restraints, we maintain ownership of all data on this website – tweets collected by 140kit are tweets that belong to 140kit. The analytical results are displayed for all users, and are licensed to users under a cc-by-nc-sa license unless specifically stated otherwise, at which point the more specific difference expressed takes precedence.
By using this service, you provide OAuth access to your Twitter account – though we do store basic user information, including your screen name, url, description, and user name. Beyond this, we do make a request that your e-mail account is provided, as we need a more permanent way to get in contact with you if necessary. These details will never be given out to any other party, and we will comply with any requests to remove data you may deem too sensitive.
If, somehow, your data has been collected by a streaming dataset on our system, and has created some form of grief for you, we’re willing to figure out how to address your concerns. E-mail us at email@example.com in order to start figuring out what we can do for you.
If we find that you are systematically abusing our system, we reserve the right to suspend you’re account. Not sure what that means, but just be aware that doing things that make you think – “huh, this is pretty abusive” – will probably lead us to think the same thing, and we’ll have to do sad things like delete data, which would suck. Probably won’t happen, you people seem nice, but, just thought it was worth saying.
