For my client (AdaptiveLab) I recently gave an internal talk on the state of the art of Natural Language Processing around Social Media (specifically Twitter and Facebook), having spent a few days digesting recent research papers. The area is fascinating (I want to do some work here via my Annotate.io) as the text is so much dirtier than in long form entries such as we might find with Reuters and BBC News.
The Powerpoint below is just the outline, I also gave some brief demos using NLTK (great Python NLP library).
