Title: Making Sense of Microblog Data
Author(s): Efron, Miles
Subject(s): microblogging, microblog data
Abstract: The increasing use of Twitter.com has pushed so-called microblogging to prominence in both popular and academic arenas. This presentation will discuss research into information management in microblogging evironments. Microblogs entail streams of brief textual postings that are often informal and highly abbreviated. While individual posts are rarely interesting to third parties, this presentation will argue that collectively, microblog data can be useful and informative. However, managing microblog text is difficult. Traditional information retrieval methods are hard-pressed to deliver useful results on the these data. This talk will enumerate several challenges that face designers of microblog search systems. The presentation will also highlight ongoing research into theoretical and technical approaches to improving access to microblog information.
