"Tweeting right from the Bloomberg Terminal allows BTIG to increase our visibility within the financial news and information platform used most by our global clientele" said Rich Greenfield, Media and Tech Analyst at BTIG. "Bloomberg's new tool seamlessly integrates into our existing workflow and is as easy to Tweet from as the Twitter application itself."
Bloomberg and Twitter partnered previously, in 2013, to bring Twitter data onto the Bloomberg Terminal. This gave Bloomberg Terminal subscribers access to alerts about unusual bursts of social media chatter about a company in their portfolio, including sentiment analysis as an integrated part of their workflow. Bloomberg makes Twitter data discoverable and actionable so subscribers can react quickly to important news and topics trending on Twitter. Now, through IB subscribers can engage in the Twitter conversation in a more secure and compliant manner.
"CEOs, world leaders, money managers, analysts, and financial journalists all turn to Twitter for breaking news and live commentary. We're thrilled that Bloomberg subscribers can now Tweet from the Terminal, providing a compliant way for more of these market influencers to actively engage in the conversation on Twitter." - Chris Moody, VP Data Strategy, Twitter @chrismoodycom
Bloomberg is continuing to build tools to address the needs of subscribers in the social media space. For more information, please contact: email@example.com.
