Hey everyone! One of my professors in my PhD at @hcdeUW is somehow letting me turn in a tweet thread for my final paper...

So here's me reviewing 10 CHI (@sig_chi) papers about Twitter, on Twitter, to understand
1) why CHI people study Twitter, and
2) how they do it.
Before I get started, I want to highlight a Twitter feature I wasn't using before reading @brookeauxier et al "#HandsOffMyADA" paper. Alt text!

You can add alt text to Twitter images in the "Accessibility" section under your "Settings and Privacy" tab. Instructions below: The Twitter toolbar, from “Home” to “More.” More is labeled.Sub-menu, with “Setting and Privacy” labeled.Further sub-menu, with “Accessibility” labeled.Further sub-menu, with “Compose image descriptions” labeled.
I had always known about alt text, but I didn't think about it when it came to Twitter. As @colegleason et. al put it in the title of their paper on Twitter’s alt text:

“It’s almost like they’re trying to hide it"
