Learn how to scrape and analyze social media data (Part 1)

Social media defines the modern-day world we live in. For the majority of us, we are registered users on at least three social media platforms. The same can also be said about organized criminals – who often use social media to further their criminal enterprises.

Understandably, such data is often large in volume, this presents investigators and analysts with the complex task of analyzing it and connecting the dots.
