This paper introduces a new type of summarization task, known as microblog summarization, which aims to synthesize content from multiple microblog posts on the same topic into a human-readable prose description of fixed length. Our approach leverages (1) a generative model which induces event structures from text and (2) a user behavior model which captures how users convey relevant content.
