Overview and benchmark of traditional and deep learning models in text classification

This article is an extension of a previous one I wrote when I was experimenting sentiment analysis on twitter data. Back in the time, I explored a simple model: a two-layer feed-forward neural network trained on keras. The input tweets were represented as document vectors resulting from a weighted average of the embeddings of the words composing the tweet.
