Twitter is most popular microblogging site. It provide us with real time data. This article Provide survey of techniques for retrieving information from twitter stream. This techniques aim is finding real world and most relevant information with respect to the query. For retrieve most relevant information used query expansion techniques. Twitter data contain large amount of information. Information rank retrieval techniques find important data and gives the final score to that information with respect to user interest profile
