The popularity of microblogs data along with the easiness of filing and posting microblogs leads to unprecedented rates of data flows. In this study we explore various research directions of microblogging. We have examined the infrastructure of major microblogging systems and highlight the challenges of data analysis associated with microblogs. In our paper, we identified several gaps and research needed since all the previous research studies are not automated especially with the fast evolution of users' usage behaviors and trends. An automated management system and would be needed to cope up with the fast changes.
