It is beyond human capabilities to analyze a huge amount of short text produced on the World Wide Web in the form of search queries, social media platforms, etc. Due to many difficulties underlying short text for automated processing, i.e, sparsity and insufficient context, the traditional text classification approaches cannot easily be applied to short text. This study discusses a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) based approach for short text classification. Given a short text, the model generates the text representation by leveraging words together with the entities. To validate the effectiveness of the model, several experiments have been conducted on different datasets. The results suggest that the proposed model is capable of performing short text classification with a high accuracy and outperforms the baseline.
