|Title:||Evaluating Real-Time Search over Tweets|
|Published:||December 10, 2012|
|Abstract:||Twitter offers a phenomenal platform for the social sharing of information. We describe new resources that have been created in the context of the Text Retrieval Conference (TREC) to support the academic study of Twitter as a real-time information source. We formalize an information seeking task,real-time search,and offer a methodology for measuring system effectiveness. At the TREC 2011 Microblog Track, 58 research groups participated in the first ever evaluation of this task. We present data from the effort to illustrate and support our methodology.|
