Many people in academia / research have used TwapperKeeper service to
capture tweets of interest (that are tagged) and export for analysis.
Let me know if you have any questions.

I am curious if there is any Twitter data set already available for
research or academia? If it is already not there then can one crawl
through the users and build one and release it to the research
community without any charge? What would be Twitter's official
policy on this?
I am sure there will be a lot of interest in academia from the
Linguistics perspective and Machine Learning perspective. These
questions are just out of curiosity and feasibility study types.
