Scope and content
The 2019 Helms-Burton Act Twitter Archive collection contains a data set of tweets collected from Twitter microblogging platform when President Trump allowed the suspension of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act from 1996 to expire. Title III allows US citizens to sue persons “trafficking” on their confiscated property in Cuba.
During the announcement, the Cuban Heritage Collection collected tweets relating to the following phrases and hashtags: Cuba cruises, Cuba travel ban, Cuba travel restrictions, Cuba sanctions, Cuba policy, #SomosContinuidad, #CubavsHelmsBurton, #HelmsBurton, and #SomosCuba between June 5, 2019 and June 12, 2019. The tweets collected by the Cuban Heritage Collection for this data archive do not represent an exhaustive or complete record of all tweets relating to the targeted hashtags due to restrictions on tweet volume accessed via the Twitter API.
The data archive is available for download to the University of Miami community via the University of Miami scholarly repository. The data is presented in JSON structured text files. For information on accessing the archive, see the “conditions governing access” section of this finding aid.
