Social networks such as Twitter and Facebook are popular, personal, and real-time in nature. We found that there exists a significant number of traffic information such as traffic congestion, incidents, and weather in Twitter. However, an algorithm is needed to extract and classify the traffic information before publishing (re-tweeting) and becoming useful for others. Traffic information was extracted from Twitter using syntactic analysis and then further classified into two categories: point and link. This method can classify 2,942 traffic tweets into the point category with 76.85% accuracy and classify 331 traffic tweets into the link category with 93.23% accuracy. Our system can report traffic information real-time.
