Characterization of the twitter @replies network

Daniel Sousa, Luís Sarmento, Eduarda Mendes Rodrigues
2010 Proceedings of the 2nd international workshop on Search and mining user-generated contents - SMUC '10  
This paper presents an analysis of the users' interactions in the implicit network derived from tweet replies of a specific dataset obtained from a popular microblogging service, Twitter 1 .  ...  Thus, the main goal of this paper is to investigate if people selectively choose whom to reply to based on the topic or, otherwise, if they reply to anyone about anything.  ...  To copy otherwise, to republish, to post on servers or to redistribute to lists, requires prior specific permission and/or a fee. of social networks and the characterization of social ties is a topic of  ...

Topic Diffusion and Emergence of Virality in Social Networks [article]

S. Rajyalakshmi, Amitabha Bagchi, Soham Das, Rudra M. Tripathy
2012 arXiv   pre-print
The dynamics of our model are based on notions taken from real-world OSNs like Twitter where users either adopt an exogenous topic or copy topics from their neighbors leading to endogenous propagation.  ...  We propose a stochastic model for the diffusion of topics entering a social network modeled by a Watts-Strogatz graph.  ...  In a microblogging network like Twitter, where the users quickly browse their timeline and retweet or reply to tweets, multiple instances do not act in order to convince the user to speak on a topic.  ...

Sebastien Ardon, Amitabha Bagchi, Anirban Mahanti, Amit Ruhela, Aaditeshwar Seth, Rudra M. Tripathy, Sipat Triukose
2011 arXiv   pre-print
We present the first comprehensive characterization of the diffusion of ideas on Twitter, studying more than 4000 topics that include both popular and less popular topics.  ...  We focus on two different notions of the spatial: the network topology formed by follower-following links on Twitter, and the geospatial location of the users.  ...  [16] investigated whether user interactions on Twitter are based on social ties or on topics, by tracking replies and message exchange on Twitter; their study is focused on only three topics namely  ...

Black Twitter? Racial Hashtags, Networks and Contagion

Sanjay Sharma
2013 New Formations  
Beyond conceiving Black Twitter as a group of preconstituted users tweeting racialized hashtags, Blacktags are instrumental in producing networked subjects which have the capacity to multiply the possibilities  ...  Thus, ethno-racial collective behaviours on the Twitter social media platform are grasped as emergent aggregations, materialized through the contagious social relations produced by the networked propagation  ...  For example, the @user-name emerged as a convention of addressivity to direct a message or reply to a user, or simply to reference another user (for example, a celebrity, without the expectation of a reply  ...

Incorporating Social Role Theory into Topic Models for Social Media Content Analysis

Wayne Xin Zhao, Jinpeng Wang, Yulan He, Jian-Yun Nie, Ji-Rong Wen, Xiaoming Li
2015 IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering  
In this paper, we explore the idea of Social Role Theory (SRT) and propose a novel regularized topic model which incorporates SRT into the generative process of social media content.  ...  A novel application of detecting users' research interests through topical keyword labeling based on the results of our multi-role model has been presented.  ...  It is easy to see that quite a few authors publish papers in multiple areas, and as suggested in [23] , [24] , the users engaged in multiple research areas are likely to be "structural holes".  ...
