With the rapid development of social network, public opinion monitoring based on social networks is becoming more and more important. Many platforms have achieved some success in public opinion monitoring. However, these platforms cannot perform well in scalability, fault tolerance, and real-time performance. In this paper, we propose a novel social-network-oriented public opinion monitoring platform based on ElasticSearch (SNES). Firstly, SNES integrates the module of distributed crawler

Finally, we design subscription module based on Apache Kafka to connect the modules of the platform together in the form of message push and consumption, improving message throughput and the ability of dynamic horizontal scaling. A great number of empirical experiments prove that the platform can adapt well to the social network with highly real-time data and has good performance in public opinion monitoring.
