Sentiment Analysis (SA) has recently gained great interest in Natural Language Processing (NLP). In fact, NLP consists in extracting data from texts and categorizing certain tweets as Positive, Negative, or Neutral. In this paper, we also present our participation in the Arabic Sentiment Analysis Challenge organized by King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). Data of interest are tweets written in Arabic language, which becomes more challengeable. In this manuscript, we present the introduced system and the bi-LSTM model. Also, detail the less efficient explored solutions. Our main objective is to extract the crucial semantic data in Arabic tweets. The obtained findings about Arabic twitter corpus reveal that the performance of the developed technique is better than that proposed in the literature. Official test accuracy scores are 0.7605 with Macro-F1 score.
