Vacancy Universiteitsbibliotheek: The University Library is looking for someone to upgrade the Twitter Archive in the short term for the DNPP department (Documentation Center for Dutch Political Parties). The developer should have knowledge of a MySQL and Laravel framework. The restoration of the Tweets and taking care of the completeness and correctness of the data is the highest priority. An infinite number of characters (no maximum) must be set in the repository. Furthermore, creating a front-end is important. The appearance of it could be derived from the recently revamped website, so that the repository is recognisable as being from DNPP (and the RUG). In addition, visitors should be given the opportunity to search in the tweets of politicians, parties and their subsidiaries by using a search function. If you are interested, please contact: Pieter van Boven ( or Teijo Doornkamp (
