About 2 years ago I wrote a simple bot to retweet and win different items on Twitter. Since it worked, I always wanted to further explore the possibilities the platform had to offers.
Therefore, I started writing a simple stock scraper 1 month ago to get sentiment data from Twitter. It basically searches for the stock ticker symbol and analyzes the tweets. I am aware that similar technology has been out there for 5 years, but I think that there is still vast opportunity in exploiting public data. That having said I would like to also take into account tweet volume and similar metrics to provide reliable trading signals.
In terms of new ideas, I am open for everything I even thought about creating a website front-end to possibly sell the obtained data feeds. In a nutshell, I am searching for a student who is interested in financial markets and has prior coding experience.
