FACTUS: Faceted Twitter User Search Using Twitter Lists
In this demonstration, we present FACTUS, a tag-based Twitter user search system using Twitter lists. FACTUS provides a faceted search over Twitter users. To this end, the system first extracts tags, such as “music” and “sports,” from Twitter lists, and assigns the tags to Twitter users. Then, facets are computed based on the tags, thereby enabling us to browse Twitter users using facets.
