Ontotext S4 Twitter Analytics API - Libraries

Twitter IE is a named entity recognition service specially tuned to use Twitter data. It performs: * tokenisation, sentence splitting and part-of-speech tagging, using a model trained specifically for Tweets * normalisation of abbreviations and shortened word forms frequently found in Tweets ("brb", "ttyl", "gr8", "2day", etc.) * tagging of Twitter-specific entities such as hashtags and @mentions, as well as URLs and emoticons * general named-entity recognition to identify basic entity types such as Person, Location, Organization, Money amounts, Time and Date expressions, etc. * mappings of entities discovered in text to reference data from the DBpedia knowledge graph Acknowledgements: The Twitter analytics service of S4 is based on the TwitIE open source information extraction pipeline by the GATE platform by the University of Sheffield
