The ability to compose emerging topics from the data collected from multiple social media platforms can help individuals and organisations meet their business goals and improve decision-making, as such information can provide more complete and accurate information. However, existing research has mainly focused on analysing emerging topics from the posts and related data collected from a single social media platform. In this paper, we propose a framework referred to as Multi-source Social Topic Media Analysis (xSMA) framework to model, rank and semantically analyse emerging topics across various social media platforms. The implementation and evaluation of the xSMA framework using real-world datasets obtained from Twitter and Reddit are also described.
