For each tweet in the test data, our approach first identifies the most similar message from the training data based on the similarity between their time series values in the same length period as provided in the test tweet, fits the ARMA models over the whole time series of the identified message, and then applies the fitted model over the time series of the test tweet to predict future values. We report our prediction results and findings in this paper.
