Bloomberg teams up with Twitter to offer improved financial alerts

Twitter is expanding its integration into Bloomberg’s financial software platform to offer Bloomberg Professional users more powerful real-time insights.

Bloomberg’s tools will now include a live feed of curated financial tweets, alerts on spikes of tweet activity related to companies of interest, sentiment analysis, as well as the ability to graph historical Twitter volume.

Ben Macdonald, Global Head of Product at Bloomberg said:

Our customers have told us that Twitter helps them uncover early trends, breaking news, and sentiment shifts, which may be indicative of changing market conditions.

By incorporating real-time information from Twitter into our customers’ workflow, Bloomberg makes this data accessible and discoverable so that our clients can react quickly to important news and trends.

Bloomberg Professional was the first financial information platform to integrate tweets back in April 2013. The company says even more features are in the pipeline.
