Twitter: The New Way to Invest
Twitter isn't just for posting random thoughts no one cares about. You may be able to use it to make some money as well.
According to a study released this month from Indiana University, it is actually possible to use Twitter to determine the public mood, which in turn can help predict the ebb and flow of the stock market.
The researchers analyzed nearly 10 million tweets from 2.7 million users over 10 months and found the ups and downs in public mood could be used to predict the daily ups and downs in the stock market with an incredible 87.6% accuracy.
