   "Predicting Dark Triad Personality Traits from Twitter usage and a 
linguistic analysis of Tweets"

   This study explores the extent to which it is possible to determine 
anti-social personality traits based on Twitter use. This was performed 
by comparing the Dark Triad and Big Five personality traits of 2,927 
Twitter users with their profile attributes and use of language. 
Analysis shows that there are some statistically significant 
relationships between these variables. Through the use of crowd sourced 
machine learning algorithms, we show that machine learning provides 
useful prediction rates, but is imperfect in predicting an individual’s 
Dark Triad traits from Twitter activity. While predictive models may be 
unsuitable for predicting an individual’s personality, they may still be 
of practical importance when models are applied to large groups of 
people, such as gaining the ability to see whether anti-social traits 
are increasing or decreasing over a population.
