Mining opinions and sentiment from social networking sites is a popular application for social media systems. Common approaches use a machine learning system with a bag of words feature set.

We use Support Vector Machines to show that Delta TFIDF significantly improves accuracy for sentiment analysis problems using three well known data sets.
