Abstract We analyze fifteen Twitter user geolocation models and two baselines comparing how they are evaluated. Our results demonstrate that the choice of effectiveness metric can have a substantial impact on the conclusions drawn from an experiment. We show that for general evaluations, a range of metrics should be reported to ensure that a complete picture of system effectiveness is conveyed.
