Kleinberg notes that to understand the dynamics of real-time information, we need on ways to

  • reason about the flow of information between people in social networks and the mechanisms of social influence
  • identify relevant text, references and phrases
We also need to consider aggregated effects such as

  • how word or topic clusters change over time [7,13,15,24,25] or
  • how to track units of text over time.
