The world has witnessed the power of digitized information dissemination via different social media channels, facilitating the spread and organization of information. More and more people use social media on a daily basis in order to express opinions about various topics such as politics, music, lifestyle, environment, or personal matters. This activity produces a massive number of audio-visual data, and text data that need to be further analyzed according to different criteria set in each case.
Text data from social media can provide important information about social media users, their identity and preferences, habits, topics discussed and the trends they follow. Deriving such information from social media text is an intriguing task in the fields of text mining, information visualization and natural language processing (NLP) with a wide range of applications in the social sciences and social media analytics.
