To gain better insight into key characteristics that will differentiate this more intensely connected future, this paper examines the data that the Internet of Things will generate.

What are we missing? An empirical exploration in the structural biases of hashtag-based sampling on Twitter
The hashtag is a recognized method to collect Twitter messages. However, it has its limits with respect to the inclusion of follow-messages, or @replies, that do not contain a hashtag. This paper explores to what extent the inclusion of non-hashtagged responses affects the study of interactions between Twitter users. The findings illustrate that hashtagged responses were more likely to include other interactive elements and the inclusion of non-hashtagged responses generated larger and more reciprocal networks.
