DataSift?s March On Wall Street Continues ? Launches Social Feeds For Stock Symbols
DataSift, the ?social data platform? that provides developers and third parties with the ability to access and interrogate?Twitter, Facebook and other real-time social sources, is continuing its march on Wall Street: The company has launched DataSift Financial, a prepackaged historical and real-time social feed designed to help the finance industry to identify and analyze stock and company information so that they can make more informed trading decisions -- faster! Not dissimilar to Twitter's own 'Cashtags', which in turn were inspired by StockTwits, the new social feeds aggregate public Tweets that mention a stock symbol, and classify Tweets to identify articles from news-providers, positive or negative mentions, and "chatter" from market analysts.
