The goal of this master thesis is to analyse how Wikipedia articles are facilitated within tweets . Therefore, we have to crawl Twitter for the according tweets and analyse these tweets subsequently. For the analysis, we are interested in (i) the various ways Twitter users make use of Wikipedia articles in their tweets and (ii) characteristics of Wikipedia pages which are referred to frequently within tweets. 

For the analysis, the aim is to implement a machine learning classification and clustering framework which can be used to create new insights on the usage of Wikipedia articles on Twitter.
