Online social microblogging sites, such as Twitter (https://twitter.com), Tumblr (http://www.tumblr.com), and Sina Weibo (https://weibo.com) are very popular platforms for information exchange on the Web today. These micro blogging sites have become trendy communication tools, enabling rapid information exchange. Vast amounts of information are generated on these sites every day through economic, academic and social activities. This crowd-sourced information can be utilised for diverse applications, ranging from market analysis, fraud detection, detection of spammers and spam posts, characterization or grouping of user according to their behavior, extraction of important news and customer retention to production control and science exploration. Data extracted from microblogs are increasingly being used to build real-time search and recommender systems, and services which mine and summarize public reactions to events. Side by side with the diverse applications, microblogging sites also bring in several challenges in utilizing the crowd-sourced data, notably need for filtering out malicious content posted by spammers and need for organizing the plethora of information.
There are already several algorithms for text summarization, most of which are extractive in nature. It is observed that different summarization algorithms generate very different summaries from the same input set of microblogs. Rather than trying to develop a new summarization algorithm, the ensemble algorithms can be proposed that attempt to combine the outputs of multiple base summarization algorithms, to produce a summary that is better than what is obtained from any of the individual base algorithms.
