Abstract/Artist's Statement

The purpose of this project is to identify subtweets. The Oxford English Dictionary defines "subtweet" as a "[Twitter post] that refers to a particular user without directly mentioning them, typically as a form of furtive mockery or criticism." This paper details a process for gathering a labeled ground truth dataset, training a classifier, and creating a Twitter bot which interacts with subtweets in real time. The Naive Bayes classifier trained in this project classifies tweets as subtweets and non-subtweets with an average F1 score of 72%.
