Twitter is a popular micro-blogging web application serving hundreds of millions of users. Users publish short messages to communicate with friends and families, express their opinions and broadcast news and information about a variety of topics all in real-time. User-generated content can be utilized as a rich source of real-world event identification as well as extract useful knowledge about disruptive events for a given region. In this paper, we propose a novel detection framework for identifying real-time events, including a main event and associated disruptive events, from Twitter data. Theapproach is based on five steps:data collection, pre-processing,classification, online clustering and summarization. We use a Naïve Bayes classification model and an Online Clustering method to validate our model on a major real-world event (Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2013).
