StockTwits has launched a new finance news headlines feature which ranks stories by social popularity.
On each ticker page, StockTwits now delivers finance news headlines and links from 500 of the industry’s leading news providers (Bloomberg, WSJ, Reuters etc.). These links are ranked by what your peers view as the most insightful and relevant.
Before the links are presented to you, they are collected, run through proprietary algorithms based on 14 social factors such as comments, shares, retweets and likes.
This is new technology for StockTwits and we will be tweaking and tuning it over the next few weeks. Your feedback on the new news feature is appreciated and can be added in the comments section of this post or addressed to phil at stocktwits dot com.
