Today, Twitter is undoubtedly the king of the RTW. It boasts 190 million users and generates in the region of 65m tweets per day. This RTW data is far from the structured data (movie ratings, product features, etc.) that is familiar to recommender systems research but it is useful to consider its applicability to recommendation scenarios. In this paper we consider harnessing the real-time opinions of users, expressed through the Twitter-like short textual reviews available on the Blippr service (www.blippr.com). In particular we describe how users and products can be represented from the terms used in their associated reviews and describe experiments to highlight the recommendation potential of this RTW data-source and approach.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Springer||Copyright (published version):||Springer-Verlag London Limited 2011||Keywords:||RTW;Real Time Web;Twitter;Blippr;Opinions;Recommendation scenarios||Subject LCSH:||Web 2.0
