EarlyBird's SmartTracks bring the key stories from Twitter on the entities you've chosen to follow, without the spam, optionally curated and reordered to highlight the financially relevant news stories that are breaking today. How do we do that?
One of the toughest things about getting financial value out of Twitter is spotting the important Tweets. Our new Activity Alerts feature identifies those Tweets that are getting a high level of interest across Twitter, and highlights them in your feed.
Twitter’s fast-moving time-based tweet stream was not designed for financial services, and traders given access to the Twitter website or even integrated solutions like Bloomberg typically get little value from it. The reason is simple. If they’re not watching Twitter all day they miss the good stuff.
When we built EarlyBird we worked with compliance teams to understand not only the explicit Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulations and their overseas equivalents, but also the unique risks of allowing direct Twitter access to traders and analysts.
EarlyBird works by providing a lightweight desktop or browser client which communicates only with our cloud-based service. Our service in turn communicates with Twitter using a commercial filtered Firehose connection.
Amongst all the “pointless babble” that appears on Twitter there is a rich source of information for the finance professional. But you need to do your homework to know where to look, and use the right tools to control the flow of information.
A new study conducted by The Pew Research Centre examines the social media habits of over 2000 Americans and the way which they receive their news. The proportion of users who say they follow breaking news on Twitter is nearing a remarkable 60%, the report suggesting that this is lending to the viewpoint that possibly Twitter’s greatest strength is providing “as it happens” coverage and commentary on live events.
Twitter is chirping with financial news and analysis, and yet a recent report showed Twitter lagging behind the other networks as an investment tool for the professional analyst or trader. The reason is pretty clear – they can’t have it. In a post LIBOR/FX rigging world where even mobile phones are banned from the trade floor, traders’ requests for Twitter, complete with its person-to-person, instant, unrecorded, encrypted communication channel are being met with a firm Nope from their compliance colleagues.
