How many topics do you usually run the model with?
A good rule of thumb is to fit a topic model with 2x the number of topics
as the real life classes you want to find. The reason is around 50% of
the topics LDA will learn are "junk topics."
This rule may not apply if you're using a supervised algorithm based on the
so you should try 2x, 3x, the number of classes, and maybe even more.
