    another somewhat sneaky method, if you can get the name of the user, is to use an onomastics engine like NamSor. There's a NamSor extension in the RapidMiner Marketplace.

    @sgenzer wow that's interesting.
    It can't be with user Id or user name? I mean it must be just with first name and last name?

    @saba76 yes that's how onomastics works. I don't think you need both FN and LN but I would look at the NamSor's site. Elian Carsenat is the owner and he's a guru. Been doing this for years.

    Another idea if you're clever and have the time...you could probably create some kind of ML pre-processing model that trains + scores twitter handles that would parse into FN and/or first initial + last name etc... For example, a human will probably guess (even without knowing me), that my twitter handle "@sgenzer" is a FirstinitialLastname combo. Our good friend @Telcontar120 on this community is twitter handle "@BrianTvenstrup" which any human will see as FirstnameLastname. Same with RapidMiner co-founder "@RalfKlinkenberg". Other co-founder Ingo Mierswa's handle is "@ingomierswa" which, I would guess, would fail most ML models. Sorry @IngoRM :wink: But you get the idea.

    Hmm interesting challenge I've created...

    @sgenzer I need some items and just can extract subjectivity objectivity and negative positives about twitter texts. I need a little more information and don't know what to do. I need it for text mining.eg to text mine McDonald's on Twitter.

    @sgenzer and one thing else! I want to clustrate but most of them include ids! I think it's because of retweets that are existed in texts and don't know how to ignore ids to have a good clustrating.
