Proceedings of the 12th International Workshop on Semantic Evaluation

The advent of social media has brought along a novel way of communication where meaning is composed by combining short text messages and visual enhancements, the so-called emojis. We describe our system for participating in SemEval-2018 Task 2 on Multilingual Emoji Prediction. Our approach relies on combining a rich set of various types of features: semantic and metadata. The most important types turned out to be the metadata feature. In subtask 1: Emoji Prediction in English, our primary submission obtain a MAP of 16.45, Precision of 31.557, Recall of 16.771 and Accuracy of 30.992.
