The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) will receive eight million euros from Twitter over the next five years to analyze all the tweets on the social network since its inception in 2006, that center reported.

MIT will use the investment from Twitter to create the Laboratory of Social Machines (LSM). “As part of the new program, Twitter will also provide full real-time access to the public stream of tweets, as well as the archives of all tweets from the beginning,” the MIT Media Lab, which will host the initiative, announced in a statement.

The project seeks to better understand how information is transmitted on Twitter and other social networks.
