Measuring Influence on Twitter using Text and User Relationships
This article is going to combine the information given by the mentioned graph theory measures with text analysis tools to improve the detection of influential users in the Twitter Social Network.
Finding Correlation Between Twitter Influence Metrics and Centrality Measures for Detection of Influential Users
The work presented in this paper reports on the implementation of some centrality measures and Twitter-specific influence measures are applied on a Twitter network of professional wrestling and the correlation among the different measures for detecting influential users.
Entropy based Weighted Features for Detecting the Influential Users on Twitter
This research displays the ability to find influencer users by using eleven features such as mention, retweet actions, new tweets, the rate of followers to friends, and the count of public lists etc which are completely effective indicators for influential users by employing the Entropy method technique and threshold value Analysis for identifying users influential on Twitter.
Characterizing behavior of topical authorities in Twitter
This study aims to determine relationships among various metrics of influential users and applies Mean Absolute Percentage Error and Mean Absolute Error measures towards assessing the regression model and achieving results accurate to a large proportion.
A New Approach for Predicting an Important User on a Topic on Twitter
This study proposed a method to determine an important user based on the activities related to each topic on Twitter by combining the measures related to user influence, user activity, and user popularity.
A Survey on Influence and Information Diffusion in Twitter Using Big Data Analytics
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the most recent research methods related to this topic and to compare them to each other and it is hoped that this summarized literature gives directions to other researchers for future studies on this topic.
Context Based Algorithm for Social Influence Measurement on Twitter
The X algorithm is used for measuring users influence on Twitter by ranking users based on followers context that is represented by number of elements, which is given a weight to prioritize elements based on client demand.
Understanding Popularity, Reputation, and Social Influence in the Twitter Society
It is found that social influence on Twitter is mainly related to popularity rather than reputation, but that this growth of influence with popularity is sublinear and that global network metrics are better predictors of inactivity and social influence.
Evolution of Hashtags on Twitter: A Case Study from Events Groups
The focus is on the centrality levels in addition to the activity levels of users participating on the hashtags under study and the effect of those levels on the activity or the membership of other users on same hashtags.
Identifying Opinion Leaders on Social Networks Through Milestones Definition
The MilestonesRank is defined, a new measure to detect opinion leaders, an important type of influential users focused on specific topics, and shows that the new measure allows us to find relevant opinion leaders that other measures are not able to detect.


TwitterRank: finding topic-sensitive influential twitterers
Experimental results show that TwitterRank outperforms the one Twitter currently uses and other related algorithms, including the original PageRank and Topic-sensitive PageRank, which is proposed to measure the influence of users in Twitter.
The Influence in Twitter: Are They Really Influenced?
An improvement of PageRank is presented, which is called InterRank Inter action Rank, which considers not only the follower relationship of the network but also topical similarity between users from tweet context and results show that the users found by InterRank are more interactive than those by PageRank.
Predicting User Influence in Social Media
This paper conducts the predictive analyses about the user influence which is measured by the click number of short URLs, and finds most of features proposed have a significant predictive power to theuser influence.
In the Mood for Being Influential on Twitter
It is suggested that the popularity and influence of a Twitter account cannot be simply traced back to the graph properties of the network within which it is embedded, but also depends on the personality and emotions of the human being behind it.
What is Twitter, a social network or a news media?
This work is the first quantitative study on the entire Twittersphere and information diffusion on it and finds a non-power-law follower distribution, a short effective diameter, and low reciprocity, which all mark a deviation from known characteristics of human social networks.
Sentiment-based influence detection on Twitter
This work proposes a new method for ranking the most influential users in Twitter based on a combination of the user position in networks that emerge from Twitter relations, the polarity of her opinions and the textual quality of her tweets.
TURank: Twitter User Ranking Based on User-Tweet Graph Analysis
In this paper, TURank (Twitter User Rank), which is an algorithm for evaluating users' authority scores in Twitter based on link analysis, is proposed, and experimental results show that the proposed algorithm outperforms existing algorithms.

This paper proposes TRank, a novel method designed to address the problem of identifying the most influential Twitter users on specific topics identified with hashtags that combines different Twitter signals to provide three different indicators that are intended to capture different aspects of being influent.
Identifying influential users by their postings in social networks
A graph model is proposed to represent the relationships between online posts of one topic, in order to identify the influential users, and a new role is suggested, the connecter, to help bridging two different clusters of posts.
