Linking News and Tweets

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 9877)


In recent years, the rise of social media such as Twitter has been changing the way people acquire information. Meanwhile, traditional information sources such as news articles are still irreplaceable. These have led to a new branch of study on understanding the relationship between news articles and social media posts and fusing information from these heterogeneous sources. In this paper, we present a system that is able to effectively and efficiently link news and relevant tweets. Specifically, given a news stream and a tweet stream, the system discovers tweets that are relevant to each news in the news stream.
