Conference Date

Abstract

Twitter is a popular online microblogging service that has become widely used by politicians to communicate with their constituents.Gaining understanding of the influence of Twitter in state politics in the United States cannot be achieved without proper computational tools. We present the first attempt to automatically classify tweets of state legislatures (policy makers at the state level) into major policy agenda topics defined by Policy Agendas Project (PAP), which was initiated to group national policies.
