With the rapid growth of social media, massive misinformation is also spreading widely on social media, e.g., Weibo and Twitter, and brings negative effects to human life. Today, automatic misinformation identification has drawn attention from academic and industrial communities. Whereas an event on social media usually consists of multiple microblogs, current methods are mainly constructed based on global statistical features. However, information on social media is full of noise, which should… Expand
