Enhancing Event Descriptions through Twitter Mining.
Authors: H. Tanev, M. Ehrmann, J. Piskorski, V. Zavarella.
We describe a simple IR approach for linking news about events, detected by an event extraction system, to messages from Twitter (tweets). In particular, we explore several methods for creating event-specific queries for Twitter and provide a quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the relevance and usefulness of the information obtained from the tweets. We showed that methods based on utilization of word co-occurrence clustering, domain-specific keywords and named entity recognition improve the performance with respect to a basic approach .
