Abstract:

Final Technical and Financial Report on the development of a prototype de-identification tool for Twitter. The objective of this work was to develop an understanding of the full range of requirements for a de-identification tool to remove personally identifiable information from social media data, both the structured and the un-structured components, to design such a tool and develop a prototype. The resulting de-identifier is scalable, supports multiple levels of de-identification, and enables smart-de-identification and so retention of object class information in a fashion that is under control of the user, supports over-time and cross-data comparison, and meets legal requirements.
