Sentiment analysis is a natural language processing technique that aims to classify text based on the emotions expressed in them. It is a research area that has been around for almost 20 years and has seen a lot of development. The works presented in this paper attempts to target a less-developed area in sentiment analysis known as multilingual sentiment analysis. More specifically, multilingual sentiment analysis of micro-texts. Using the existing WordNet lexicon and a domain-specific lexicon for a corpus of Spanish tweets, we analyze the effectiveness of these techniques.
