Elfresh,

Welcome to the forums!

A tad short on time, but for a quick answer, you're interested in text mining, which is a subset of data mining.

You can probably Google terms like "text mining Twitter" to find useful starting points.

In general, you'll want to have an idea about what you're looking for before you get caught up in technical implementation. Lots of folks mine social media platforms like Twitter, often to find information for marketing purposes. So it's a huge, well-funded field; the big question's what you want from it.
