Multi-aspect Entity-Centric Analysis of Big Social Media Archives.

Social media archives serve as important historical information sources, and thus meaningful analysis and exploration methods are of immense value for historians, sociologists and other interested parties. In this paper, we propose an entity-centric approach to analyze social media archives and we define measures that allow studying how entities are reflected in social media in different time periods and under different aspects (like popularity, attitude, controversiality, and connectedness with other entities). A case study using a large Twitter archive of 4 years illustrates the insights that can be gained by such an entity-centric multi-aspect analysis.
