Byte-Sized-Chunks: Twitter Sentiment Analysis (in Python)

Use Python and the Twitter API to build your own sentiment analyzer!


What's Inside

Course Description

Sentiment Analysis (or) Opinion Mining is a field of NLP that deals with extracting subjective information (positive/negative, like/dislike, emotions).

  • Learn why it's useful and how to approach the problem: Both Rule-Based and ML-Based approaches.
  • The details are really important - training data and feature extraction are critical. Sentiment Lexicons provide us with lists of words in different sentiment categories that we can use for building our feature set.
  • All this is in the run up to a serious project to perform Twitter Sentiment Analysis. We'll spend some time on Regular Expressions which are pretty handy to know as we'll see in our code-along.
