Social networks have become one of the major and important parts of daily life. Besides sharing ones views the social networking sites can also be very efficiently used to judge the behavior and attitude of individuals towards the posts. Analysis of the mood of public on a particular social issue can be judged by several methods. Analysis of the society mood towards any particular news in form of tweets is investigated in this paper. The key objective behind this research is to increase the accuracy and effectiveness of the classification by the process of Natural Language Processing (NLP) Techniques while focusing on semantics and World Sense Disambiguation. The process of classification includes the combination of the effect of various independent classifiers on one particular classification problem. The data that is available in the form of tweets on twitter can easily frame the insight of the public attitude towards the particular tweet. The proposed work implements a hybrid method that includes Hybrid K, clustering and boosting. A comparison of this scheme versus a K-means/SVM approach is provided. Results are shown and discussed.
