Microblogging websites have emerged to the center of information production and diffusion, on which people can get useful information from other users’ microblog posts. In the era of Big Data, we are overwhelmed by the large amount of microblog posts. To make good use of these informative data, an effective search tool is required specialized for microblog posts. However, it is not trivial to do microblog search due to the following reasons: 1) microblog posts are noisy and time-sensitive rendering general information retrieval models ineffective. 2) Conventional IR models are not designed to consider microblog-specific features. In this paper, we propose to utilize learning to rank model for microblog search. We combine content-based, microblog-specific and temporal features into learning to rank models, which are found to model microblog posts effectively. To study the performance of learning to rank models, we evaluate our models using tweet data set provided by TERC 2011 and TREC 2012 microblogs track with the comparison of three state-of-the-art information retrieval baselines, vector space model, language model, BM25 model. Extensive experimental studies demonstrate the effectiveness of learning to rank models and the usefulness to integrate microblog-specific and temporal information for microblog search task.
