to capture demographics beyond Twitter? We explore this question via a series of in-genre and cross-genre experiments on English and Spanish using the best performing system at PAN 2016, and discover that portability is successful to a certain extent, provided that the sub-genres involved are close enough. In such cases, it is also more beneficial to do cross-genre than in-genre modelling if the cross-genre setting can benefit from largeramounts of training data than those available in-genre.
