Twitter POS Tagging with LingPipe and ARK Tweet Data by Bob Carpenter.
From the post:
We will train and test on anything that’s easy to parse. Up today is a basic English part-of-speech tagging for Twitter developed by Kevin Gimpel et al. (and when I say “et al.”, there are ten co-authors!) in Noah Smith’s group at Carnegie Mellon.

How’s that for a motto!
Social media may be more important than I thought it was several years ago. It may just be the serialization in digital form all the banter in bars, at blocks parties and around the water cooler. If that is true, then governments would be well advised to encourage and assist with access to social media. To give them an even chance of leaving ahead of the widow maker.
Think of mining Twitter data like the NSA and phone traffic, but you aren’t doing anything illegal.
