Thank you for your interest in participating in an upcoming user research study on Twitter! 

The Twitter User Research team would like to invite you to participate in an upcoming research study. This study will help the team better understand how you use Twitter, which will help us build a better experience for you and other users.

If you are interested in participating, please complete the screener below. It should take about 5 minutes. If you are selected, we will contact you to schedule the phone interview. There are no right or wrong answers to the questions. We are looking for a range of participants so please answer as accurately as you can.

They go on to ask the basics: contact info, time zone, age, gender, but there are also questions about who you work for – or what you’re going to school for, and the industry for whichever applies. And they’re particularly interested in knowing if that industry is “web design, web development, mobile application development, marketing, market research, Internet research, government, [or] journalism.”

Here are the Twitter-specific questions:

Looks like there will be an interactive portion to this hour-long survey. How interesting. Click away and if you get to participate, reach out and let us know how it goes! And be sure to thank @RunGomez for the easy money!
