Analysis of Temporal and Web Site References in History-related Tweets

Having good knowledge and comprehension of history is believed to be important for a variety of reasons. In this paper we report the initial results of a large scale exploratory analysis of history-focused references in microblogs based on 11-months long snapshot of Twitter data. The results of this study can be used for designing content recommendation systems and can help to improve time aware search applications.
