In this paper, we propose a method to evaluate effectiveness of our proposed context-aware text entry by using Twitter. We focus on "geo-tagged" public tweets because they include user's important contexts, real location and time. We also focus on TV program listing because 50% traffic of iPhone in Japan is generated from our home, in which I often tweets in watching a TV. Cyclical collecting system based on Streaming API and Search API of Twitter is proposed for gathering the target tweets efficiently. In order to find the relationship between user's contexts and really used words, we compare really-tweeted words with words obtained from Local Search API of Yahoo! Japan that is used for our context-aware text entry and words obtained from TV program listing. We analyze 471274 tweets that have been collected from 15 December 2009 to 10 June 2010 for specifying the relationship to landmark information and TV program. As a result, we show that 5.1% of tweets include landmark words, and 9% of tweets include TV program words. Additionally, we bring out that there are location dependent words and time dependent words.
