The increasing volume of communication via microblogging messages on social networks has created the need for efficient Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools, especially for unstructured text processing. Extracting information from unstructured social text is one of the most demanding NLP tasks. This paper presents the first part-of-speech tagged data set of social text in Greek, as well as the first supervised part-of-speech tagger developed for such data sets.
