InSystem Sciences, 2009. HICSS'09. 42nd Hawaii International Conference on(pp. 1-10). Ieee. In an attempt to determine how well Twitter supports user-to-user exchanges, what people are using Twitter for, and what usage or design modifications would make it usable as a tool for collaboration, this study analyzes a corpus of naturally-occurring public Twitter messages (tweets), focusing on the functions and uses of the @ sign and the coherence of exchanges. The findings reveal a surprising degree of conversationality, facilitated especially by the use of @ as a marker of addressivity, and shed light on the limitations of Twitter's current design for collaborative use.

What's in a hashtag?: content based prediction of the spread of ideas inmicrobloggingcommunities, Tsur, O., & Rappoport, A. (2012, February). What's in a hashtag?: content based prediction of the spread of ideas in microblogging communities. InProceedings of the fifth ACM international conference on Web search and data mining(pp. 643-652). ACM. This paper examines the focu of current social media research, which is mostly on temporal trends of the information flow and on the topology of the social graph that facilitates the propagation of information. The paper studies the effect of the content of the idea on the information propagation. The paper aims to show that a combination of content features with temporal and topological features minimizes prediction error.
