OLID (Offensive Language Identification Dataset)

Introduced by Zampieri et al. in Predicting the Type and Target of Offensive Posts in Social Media

The OLID is a hierarchical dataset to identify the type and the target of offensive texts in social media. The dataset is collected on Twitter and publicly available. There are 14,100 tweets in total, in which 13,240 are in the training set, and 860 are in the test set. For each tweet, there are three levels of labels: (A) Offensive/Not-Offensive, (B) Targeted-Insult/Untargeted, (C) Individual/Group/Other. The relationship between them is hierarchical. If a tweet is offensive, it can have a target or no target. If it is offensive to a specific target, the target can be an individual, a group, or some other objects. This dataset is used in the OffensEval-2019 competition in SemEval-2019.
