Information propagation in microblog networks

Chenyi Zhang, Jianling Sun, Ke Wang

Personalized time-aware tweets summarization

Zhaochun Ren, Shangsong Liang, Edgar Meij, Maarten de Rijke
2013 Proceedings of the 36th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '13  
We propose a time-aware user behavior model, the Tweet Propagation Model (TPM), in which we infer dynamic probabilistic distributions over interests and topics.  ...  Specifically, we consider the task of time-aware tweets summarization, based on a user's history and collaborative social influences from "social circles."  ...  We write TPM-SOC for the model that only considers users' social influence (so excluding time-aware topic propagation and it doesn't consider if some topic is private or not).  ...
