Recent studies have shown that cyberbullying is a rising youth epidemic. In this paper, we develop a novel automated classification model that identifies the cyberbullying texts without fitting them into large dimensional space. On the other hand, a classifier.cannot provide a limited convergent solution due to its overfitting problem. Considering such limitations, we developed a text classification engine that initially pre-processes the tweets, eliminates noise and other background information, extracts the selected features and classifies without data overfitting. The study develops a novel Deep Decision Tree classifier that utilizes the hidden layers of Deep Neural Network (DNN) as its tree node to process the input elements. The validation confirms the accuracy of classification using the novel Deep classifier with its improved text classification accuracy.
