dc.description Paper presented at the 33rd European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR-11), 18-21 April, 2010, DCU, Dublin, Ireland en
dc.description.abstract User-generated content has dominated the web’s recent growth and today the so-called real-time web provides us with unprecedented access to the real-time opinions, views, and ratings of millions of users. For example, Twitter’s 200m+ users are generating in the region of 1000+ tweets per second. In this work, we propose that this data can be harnessed as a useful source of recommendation knowledge. We describe a social news service called Buzzer that is capable of adapting to the conversations that are taking place on Twitter to ranking personal RSS subscriptions. This is achieved by a content-based approach of mining trending terms from both the public Twitter timeline and from the timeline of tweets published by a user’s own Twitter friend subscriptions. We also present results of a live-user evaluation which demonstrates how these ranking strategies can add better item filtering and discovery value to conventional recency-based RSS ranking techniques. en
