Abstract

This paper proposes an approach called TOLCS (Tweet Ordinance Linkage by Commonsense and Semantics) which helps connect specific ordinances or local laws to pertinent tweets expressing public reactions on them. TOLCS incorporates pragmatic aspects by commonsense knowledge, and semantic aspects by domain knowledge along with text similarity methods. It uses a blocking mechanism to reduce sample space for efficiently processing big data on ordinances and tweets.
