Modelling of Trends in Twitter Using Retweet Graph Dynamics [chapter]

Marijn ten Thij, Tanneke Ouboter, Daniël Worm, Nelly Litvak, Hans van den Berg, Sandjai Bhulai
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we model user behaviour in Twitter to capture the emergence of trending topics. For this purpose, we first extensively analyse tweet datasets of several different events.  ...  In particular, for these datasets, we construct and investigate the retweet graphs. We find that the retweet graph for a trending topic has a relatively dense largest connected component (LCC).  ...  In this paper, we investigate the dynamics of retweet graphs with the goal to predict peaks in Twitter activity and classify the nature of trends.  ...

Seismic: A Self-Exciting Point Process Model for Predicting Tweet Popularity using Hashtags

Karthick. D, Dr. G. Vadivu
2017 International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development  
In existing paper they had used a full month of Twitter data to evaluate SEISMIC .In which the original data set contains over 3.2 billion tweets and retweets on Twitter from Octobor 7 to November 7, 2011  ...  So here we are going to propose the mining of tweets with a particular #hashtags and going to formulate the number of retweets in an efficient manner ,so that it will be more efficient in terms of organizing  ...  Existing models either fail to model the triggering e ect of retweeting dynamics, e.g., the model based on reinforced Poisson process, or are hard to be trained using only the retweeting dynamics of individual  ...

Detection of Trending Topic Communities

Lorena Recalde, David F. Nettleton, Ricardo Baeza-Yates, Ludovico Boratto
2017 Proceedings of the 28th ACM Conference on Hypertext and Social Media - HT '17  
The rise of a trending topic on Twitter or Facebook leads to the temporal emergence of a set of users currently interested in that topic.  ...  Given the temporary nature of the links between these users, being able to dynamically identify communities of users related to this trending topic would allow for a rapid spread of information.  ...  This will allow us to understand the dynamics that characterize the activity on Twitter, even before communities are detected. (2) Analysis of the disconnected users.  ...

2015 arXiv   pre-print
We use a random graph (RG) model to mimic the progression of a trend through the network. The context of the trend is not included in our model.  ...  Knowing how and when trends are formed is a frequently visited research goal. In our work, we focus on the progression of trends through (social) networks.  ...  [16] study different patterns of hashtag trends in Twitter. They also observe four different classes of hashtag trends. Rattanaritnont et al.  ...

On predicting Twitter trend

Peng Zhang, Xufei Wang, Baoxin Li
2013 Proceedings of the 2013 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining - ASONAM '13  
In this paper, we predict hashtag trend in Twitter network with two basic issues under investigation, i.e. trend factors and prediction models.  ...  To address the second issue, we adopt prediction models that have different combinations of the two basic model properties, i.e. linearity and state-space.  ...  Any opinions expressed in this material are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the NSF.  ...

Detection of Trending Topic Communities: Bridging Content Creators and Distributors

Lorena Recalde
2017 BCS-IRSG Symposium on Future Directions in Information Access  
The rise of a trending topic on Twitter leads to the temporal emergence of a set of users currently interested in that topic.  ...  This is a novel problem on group-to-group interactions in the context of recommender systems and user modeling.  ...  In the RBC method, the set of edges in the graph connects two users only if one retweeted the other.  ...

Svitlana Volkova, Glen Coppersmith, Benjamin Van Durme
2014 Proceedings of the 52nd Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (Volume 1: Long Papers)  
When updating models over time based on Twitter, we find that political preference can be often be predicted using roughly 100 tweets, depending on the context of user selection, where this could mean  ...  iii) estimate the amount of time and tweets required for a dynamic model to predict user preferences.  ...  Identifying Twitter Social Graph Twitter users interact with one another and engage in direct communication in different ways e.g., using retweets, user mentions e.g., @youtube or hashtags e.g., #tcot,  ...

Fabián Riquelme, Pablo González-Cantergiani
2016 Information Processing & Management  
Twitter has different types of users, but the greatest utility lies in finding the most influential ones.  ...  Some are based on simple metrics provided by the Twitter API, while others are based on complex mathematical models.  ...  The biggest problem is whether we use G 2 or G 3 graphs, which explicitly represents the high dynamics of the network. If we consider G 1 graphs, the problem is the huge amount of Twitter users.  ...

2013 Proceedings of the 6th International Symposium on Visual Information Communication and Interaction - VINCI '13  
Tracking in the pulse of retweeting propagation is important and meaningful.  ...  For revealing the dynamic attributes, we propose two models: the depthvarying and the time-varying parallel data model to illustrate the temporal evolution efficiently.  ...  We have also introduced two parallel data models to depict the dynamic retweeting propagation graph in a single image, which has clear advantages over the traditional presentation for dynamic retweeting  ...
