I'm working with someone to analyze Twitter sentiment tweets. Â It's lookling like a great and interesting project alright and I've set up the basic processes already. Â I'll probably build a standard XVal type of model to see what kind of accuracy I get and then weight the positive and negative sentiments with a SVM. Â Plus do a lot of data discovery on the classified data.
I fully believe that Twitter is an untapped goldmine for marketers, financial folks, and a slew of all other kinds of people. Â The trick to tapping into Twitter and building a viable model first before you start digging around for sentiment. Â Why? Because there's a lot of crap in Twitter too.
They pay us the big bucks forÂ separatingÂ the chafe from the wheat...
