- There's a growing list of applications that build off of the Twitter data feed of wit, prose, commentary of 140 characters (that's the limit Twitter allows you to express your thought/twit). Here's just 2 applications that seek to manage and organize Twitter chatter into relevant conversations based on your interests and those whose comments you follow:
A. Tweetdeck, a slick application that in one view organizes group conversations and replies to your comments: http://www.tweetdeck.com/beta/
B. StockTwits, I expect to see more of these types of applications - the kind that create communities around common domains (e.g., movies, sports, or in this case, all things stocks and markets). StockTwits mines the Twitter feed for those comments that use stock symbols and organizes not only who is talking about what stocks, but given a stock, who has talked about it: http://www.stocktwits.com/streams/all
Both of these apps and others build off your Twitter account (which you must first create at Twitter).
- Via Twitter and its associated, helpful assist applications, I'm getting more articles about market strategy than I would ever found on my own. The Twitter community about the markets that I follow supplies an almost never-ending supply of "Hey, look what this guy said". These articles are the source of most of the Strategy Session articles we write (where we model what's theorized according to the Trade-Ideas list of alerts and filters).
