[edit] Abstract

The analysis of trending topics in Twitter is a goldmine for a variety of studies and applications. However, the contents of topics vary greatly from daily routines to major public events, enduring from a few hours to weeks or months. It is thus helpful to distinguish trending topics related to real- world events with those originated within virtual communi- ties. In this paper, we analyse trending topics in Twitter using Wikipedia as reference for studying the provenance of trending topics. We show that among difierent factors, the duration of a trending topic characterizes exogenous Twitter trending topics better than endogenous ones. Copyright
