We collected daily tweets spanning from October 3rd to October 29th of 2022 (the day after the second turn elections in Brazil) for each one of the candidates running in the Brazilian second turn presidential elections.

We extracted the data through a Twitter API used exclusively for academic purposes and analyzed using R software.
