Abstract : Social media has evolved to be a crucial part of life today for everyone. With such a global population communicating with each other, comes the accumulation of large amounts of social media data. This data can be categorized as “Big Data”, owing to its large quantity. It contains valuable information in the form of the demographics of authors on online platforms; the analysis of which is required in certain scenarios to maintain decorum in the online community. Here, we have analyzed Twitter data, which is the training data of the PAN@CLEF(link sends e-mail) 2017 shared task contest, to identify the gender, as well as the language variety of the author. It is available in four different languages, namely, English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Arabic. Both Document-Term Matrix (DTM) and Term Frequency-Inverse Document Frequency (TF-IDF) have been used for text representation. The classifiers used are SVM, AdaBoost, Decision Tree, and Random Forest. © 2019, Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
