MUMBAI: Twitter and Asia's first stock exchange, BSE, have joined forces in their pursuit of providing real time information to the business community in India on Twitter via auto tweets, DMs and more. Investors can access financial data at the tip of their fingers, through four unique integrations:
·Hourly Tweet updates of the Sensex figures
·@BSEIndia's display photo change every two minutes to reflect the current Sensex figure and level
·Real time replies for Sensex 30 current stock prices via an auto-response
·Direct Message subscription facility for Daily Opening and Closing stock price for Sensex 30 companies
Twitter is the first international social media platform that the BSE is leveraging to enable Indian investors to access stock-related information via a digital platform with ease.
Twitter has activated four unique features through hourly tweets, autoresponder tweets for Sensex 30 stock prices, auto direct messages for opening and closing figures of Sensex 30, and a ‘live’ display photo that will change every two minutes to project the dynamic Sensex figure and level.
During trading hours (9 am to 3.30 pm), @BSEIndia will send hourly tweet updates of the Sensex figures, level, and Top 5 gainers and Top 5 losers.
