Abstract

We explore using relevant tweets of a given news article to help sentence com-pression for generating compressive news highlights. We extend an unsupervised dependency-tree based sentence compres-sion approach by incorporating tweet in-formation to weight the tree edge in terms of informativeness and syntactic impor-tance. The experimental results on a pub-lic corpus that contains both news arti-cles and relevant tweets show that our pro-posed tweets guided sentence compres-sion method can improve the summariza-tion performance significantly compared to the baseline generic sentence compres-sion method.
