Title: What Can We Know About an Anonymous Writer?

Abstract: Much of the text that is uploaded to the internet is posted anonymously or pseudonymously. But writing style gives away more than most people suspect.

We will show how to determine an anonymously writer's gender, age, native language, personality traits, political affiliation and -- in some cases -- their actual identity.
