In the past few years Twitter has achieved a tremendous success. Twitter is an online microblogging service, the tweets up to 140 characters allow people to use Twitter via SMS platforms or computers. With more than 200 million users and 155 million posted messages a day, Twitter has become a vast storehouse of content, i.e. information and knowledge. Such large amount of data that can be accessed on Twitter requires a structure in order to help users find information they need. The purpose of this paper is to explore ways of structuring information on social networks, especially on Twitter. The aim of this study is to search for and present the most popular methods of gathering and structuring data published on the social networking site Twitter.
