We describe Buzzer, a news recommendation system that is capable of adapting to the conversations that are taking place on Twitter. Buzzer uses a content-based approach to ranking RSS news stories by mining trending terms from both the public Twitter timeline and from the timeline of tweets generated by a user’s own social graph (friends and followers). We also describe the result of a live-user trial which demonstrates how these ranking strategies can add value to conventional RSS ranking techniques, which are largely recency-based.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||ACM||Copyright (published version):||2011 The authors||Keywords:||Social recommendation; News recommendation; Content-based recommendation; Realtime recommendation; Twitter||Subject LCSH:||Recommender systems (Information filtering)
