This paper describes Mecodify, an open-source tool aimed at codifying and presenting online data primarily for the use of social media researchers. Although the first stage of the platform’s development is confined to Twitter as a source of data, the tool has the capacity to develop so it could use data from other platforms including but not limited to Facebook, Instagram, and even news websites. This essay identifies potentials of growth and development as well as limitations of the tool.
