Several types of online chat system have been developed; however, there exist no recommendation systems for the recommendation of topics suitable for discussion with a given individual at a particular time. This paper proposes a hot-topic recommendation system based on analysis of the tweets posted by the user, his/her chat partners, and similar users of his/her chat partners, as well as hashtags trending in Twitter. In experiments, the proposed system, which is based on the well-known Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA) algorithm, was shown to outperform existing recommendation systems with regard to computational efficiency as well as prediction accuracy.
