LinTY: Link your Twitter and Yahoo!



Introduction and Tutorial

LinTY is a personalized search engine that tries to provide to the users "YOUR search engine" instead of "THE search engine" by realizing your recent interests shown in your own Twitter. Currently, LinTY supports personalized Yahoo! Web pages search, news search and image search.

The use of LinTY is very straitforward. It has not much difference for you to use if you are familiar with Yahoo! and Google search, with an additional effort that you have to log in the LinTY search engine by using YOUR own Twitter account. LinTY extracts your interests on the fly from your Twitter, analizes the interests list by using retained interest model, finding the top k interests, and uses them as constraints for your search task. In this way, the search results will be very relevant to your query as well as your recent interests (not other users).

Please contact the contributors if you have any questions.
