Short text classification in twitter to improve information filtering
In microblogging services such as Twitter, the users may become overwhelmed by the raw data. One solution to this problem is the classification of short text messages. As short texts do not provide sufficient word occurrences, traditional classification methods such as “Bag-Of-Words” have limitations. To address this problem, we propose to use a small set of domain-specific features extracted from the author’s profile and text. The proposed approach effectively classifies the text to a predefined set of generic classes such as News, Events, Opinions, Deals, and Private Messages. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.3.3 [Information Search and Retrieval]: Information filtering. General Terms Algorithms, Performance, Experimentation. Keywords Short text, classification, Twitter, feature selection.
