It seems rather silly not to have this out where people can find it 🙂

So, with no further ado, I present to you my master’s thesis on the personality perception in twitter users.

ABSTRACT: Micropublishing, the primary process provided by social network services, has become the most prevalent form of Computer Based Communication. This experiment examined how gender, perceived within a micropublishing environment, affects perception of personality.

After completing an intake survey, 29 participants were ostensibly directed to subscribe to a fellow participant’s micropublishing stream on the Twitter.com social network service for two weeks. In actual fact, all participants received identical messages, served from individual twitter accounts, with either a male or female avatar photo. Upon completion, the participants rated their ostensible partners on a subset of Prescriptive and Proscriptive Traits developed by Prentice and Carranza (2002).
