Abstract

Twitter is a prevailing online social media platform which is available for a large number of users. On Twitter, users communicate through messages and posts. On it, the messages are termed as tweets. This paper is intended to predict the user’s personality from an analysis of the tweets which the user has shared. There are many techniques for personality prediction but there are some drawbacks of these techniques which are addressed in this paper. The objective of this paper is to provide a general outlook of the measures which are taken to predict the user’s personality and draw comparisons between the results obtained from passing the available data through different classifiers.
