Detecting Stance in Tweets : A Signed Network based Approach

  title={Detecting Stance in Tweets : A Signed Network based Approach},
  author={Roshni Chakraborty and Maitry Bhavsar and Sourav Kumar Dandapat and Joydeep Chandra},
Identifying user stance related to a political event has several applications, like determination of individual stance, shaping of public opinion, identifying popularity of government measures and many others. The huge volume of political discussions on social media platforms, like, Twitter, provide opportunities in developing automated mechanisms to identify individual stance and subsequently, scale to a large volume of users. However, issues like short text and huge variance in the vocabulary… 

SigGAN : Adversarial Model for Learning Signed Relationships in Networks

A GAN based model for signed networks, SigGAN, inspired by the recent success of Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) based models in several applications is proposed and compared with state-of-the-art techniques on 5 real-world datasets validates the effectiveness of SigGAN.



Stance Evolution and Twitter Interactions in an Italian Political Debate

A new model for stance detection in Twitter is proposed, where authors’ messages are not considered in isolation, but in a diachronic perspective for shedding light on users’ opinion shift dynamics along the temporal axis, and analysis and classification experiments show that network-based features help in detecting stance and confirm the importance of modeling stance in aiaries perspective.

Stance Detection on Microblog Focusing on Syntactic Tree Representation

A new parts-of-speech (POS) generalization technique is devised and employ the hashtag segmentation for effective tree representation and a majority voting count based prediction scheme is employed to identify the tweet stance.

Stance Classification by Recognizing Related Events about Targets

To classify texts including these phenomena, a classification method based on machine learning considering PRIOR-SITUATION and EFFECT is proposed.

Identifying Users with Opposing Opinions in Twitter Debates

ReLP is proposed, a semi-supervised framework using a retweet-based label propagation algorithm coupled with a supervised classifier to identify users with differing opinions in Twitter, designed such that it can be easily adopted to different domains with little human supervision while still producing excellent accuracy.

A Network Based Stratification Approach for Summarizing Relevant Comment Tweets of News Articles

Extracting the relevant opinions from tweets is a challenging task due to the enormous volume of contents generated and difference in vocabulary of social media contents from the published article.

Stance Detection on Tweets: An SVM-based Approach

The results indicate that joint use of the features based on unigrams, hashtags, and named entities by SVM classifiers is a plausible approach for stance detection problem on sports-related tweets.

Friends and Enemies of Clinton and Trump: Using Context for Detecting Stance in Political Tweets

A novel approach for detecting stance in Twitter that defines a set of features in order to consider the context surrounding a target of interest with the final aim of training a model for predicting the stance towards the mentioned targets.

Twitter Stance Detection — A Subjectivity and Sentiment Polarity Inspired Two-Phase Approach

This paper addresses the problem of detecting the stance of given tweets, with respect to given topics, from user-generated text (tweets), using the SemEval 2016 stance detection task dataset and develops a two-phase feature-driven model.

Visual Analysis of Sentiment and Stance in Social Media Texts

StanceVis Prime is described, which has been designed for the analysis of sentiment and stance in temporal text data from various social media data sources, and provides the end users with an overview of similarities between the data series based on dynamic time warping analysis, as well as detailed visualizations of data series values.
