Processing social media data:
can we circumvent the Tower of Babel?

Social media are known to be a diverse and rich source of information 
for various areas of research. However, they pose a series of processing 
challenges due to the linguistic and cultural diversity of their users. 
Processing social media texts with standard language technologies has an 
error rate much higher than that on standard texts. Furthermore, 
researchers are regularly in need of additional user data like their 
sociodemographic information. In the first part of my talk I will 
present a series of technology adaptations for processing varying 
language production, while in the second part I will overview some 
experiments on language-independent user profiling such as user type 
identification and gender prediction.
