The StockTwits team is excited to partner with a premier real-time market data company, NASDAQ OMX, on their Data Junkies campaign. To date, StockTwits has focused on real-time stock commentary and fostering community, but with the NASDAQ Data Junkies campaign our conversations and ideas will light up with real-time data.
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 4, 2009 -
The NASDAQ Data Junkies campaign is a compelling example of how real-time data can be integrated into a streaming social media community like StockTwits. NASDAQ's @DataJunkie Twitter account provides real-time NASDAQ stock prices directly into relevant StockTwits streams.
StockTwits and NASDAQ also have enabled users to send "$GOOG $AAPL"-style direct messages to @DataJunkies to receive real-time stock quotes without leaving Twitter. This is the perfect feature for a mobile investor.
Data Junkies will be able to send a tweet for the opportunity to ring the NASDAQ Closing Bell at NASDAQ MarketSite in New York. StockTwits.com user tweets also will be streamed to the NASDAQ MarketSite tower in Times Square and broadcast around the world on CNBC and other networks during the Data Junkie market close.
In the coming weeks, NASDAQ is planning to offer Data Junkies access to another premier data product - previously not available to the public - and will host StockTwits virtual lunches to provide traders with the inside tips to best utilize these tools.
Later this fall, StockTwits will host StockCamp at the NASDAQ MarketSite -- a physical gathering of NASDAQ Data Junkies collaborating and networking around trading strategies, tools, resources and other stock-related topics.
