Micro-Lecture Twitter Text Mining

This small lecture snippet was held as part of the BMBF-project ICAML and on invitation as well for the lecture Geodata Mining at the Chair of Cartography of TU Munich on July, 2nd.

Here is a walk-through of all the steps involved in basic text mining from Twitter

The following slide deck can serve as a table-of-contents if you want to learn how to

It is up to you to apply this knowledge for something good!
