Abstract:Twitter has become a rich source of people’s opinions about a variety of topics, such as their daily life, and current news. Twitter’s retweeting and mentioning mechanisms enable users to disseminate information broadly. In this study, we investigate the effects of community-based and context-based features on the users’ information adoption and diffusion patterns in Twitter. Community-based features capture how the adoption of a hashtag by users within the target user’s community and users outside that community influences the target user’s selection of the target hashtag. Context-based features measure the influence of other users’ adoption of hashtags that are semantically similar with a hashtag on the target user’s adoption of this hashtag. We find the community-based features enhance the prediction of users’ hashtag adoption and diffusion. However, the further exploration of context-based features is needed.
