In addition to the Investors Underground chat, I like to keep Twitter open during the day to get a feel for what other traders are looking at. There’s a wealth of news worthy information being shared on social media sites throughout the day.
Twitter.com doesn’t auto-refresh when a new tweet comes out. I would find myself clicking on “View 1 new Tweet” countless times each day. I began looking for an auto-refresh Twitter app when I stumbled across TweetDeck.
This Windows/Mac application is offered by Twitter and does exactly what I need it to do. It automatically displays new tweets without any user interaction. To go a step further, it also alerts me to tweets for any specified user.
Following just the right people can turn your feed into an up-to-the-minute stock market news source. I use my Twitter account to follow people that are useful.
If you’re looking for a way to stay up on your Twitter feed, I would recommend checking this program out. It’s available for Windows, Mac and Chrome.
For those who dont have a Twitter account, now is the time to get one. If you dont know who to follow, just follow everyone that I do. Don’t worry about them following you back. 90% of the people I follow dont follow me back. So what.
I don’t use Twitter to make friends, I use it for news.
