Linking name mentions in microblog posts to a knowledge base, namely microblog entity linking, is useful for text mining tasks on mi- croblog. Entity linking in long text has been well studied in previous works. However few work has focused on short text such as mi- croblog post. Microblog posts are short and noisy. Previous method can extract few fea- tures from the post context. In this paper we propose to use extra posts for the microblog entity linking task. Experimental results show that our proposed method significantly im- proves the linking accuracy over traditional methods by 8.3% and 7.5% respectively.
