Microblogging queries on graph databases: An introspection
Microblogging data is growing at a rapid pace. This poses new challenges to the data management systems, such as graph databases, that are typically suitable for analyzing such data. In this paper, we share our experience on exe- cuting a wide variety of micro-blogging queries on two pop- ular graph databases: Neo4j and Sparksee. Our queries are designed to be relevant to popular applications of micro- blogging data. The queries are executed on a large real graph data set comprising of nearly 50 million nodes and 326 million edges.
