twitter following study

I'm currently conducting a study of following on Twitter. in the process of recruiting participants, more than a couple people have asked for a non-PDF version of the recruitment information, so here it is.


Do You Use Twitter? Join Research about Following on Twitter

- A regular user of Twitter or other microblogging service (such as Jaiku) – must be following at least 5 other users
- Can participate in phone/Skype interview, or lives near Orange County, CA
- Owns a personal computer
- Age of 18 or over

The purpose of this research is to investigate how people follow and interact on Twitter and other microblogs. Participation in this research will involve in-person interviews every 4 to 6 weeks lasting through Spring of 2010, and possibly one or more group interviews. There is no risk to participants and involvement can be ended at any time. Participants will be entered in a drawing for a $100 Amazon.com gift card at the end of the research period. Participants’ privacy and rights will be completely protected. Participation is completely voluntary and may be discontinued at any time.
