Hello all and Happy New Year!

I snagged 412,700 tweets from Twitter from about 16 hours that went from 2300 UTC December 31 to 1500 UTC Jan 1.   This was 5% of the total tweets that went out with the phrase "new year".

I ran some analysis on about 330,000 tweets having to do with people going to see/having seen The Avengers.   In case you've been completely deprived of any sort of media recently, it's a superhero movie.

Some might say "The Superhero Movie", but, not having seen it myself yet, I'm not in a position to judge.

Hi!  Concept Topics are our revolutionary way to create classifiers for what used to be hard-to-classify buckets.   Things like politics, food, real-estate, business.  Most of our customers need to do some sort of classification - bucketing responses on surveys, determining which area of business is being talked about in the press.

I'm going to write a few blog articles to show how machine learning and natural language processing techniques are used in partnership inside of Lexalytics software.
