In a shock announcement Yahoo Finance today announced that the search engine giant has started to pull data from StockTwits’ ApI. Stock Twit is a service that finds and documents conversations related with stocks from the microblogging site twitter which are tagged with a $ symbol.
The stream of this service can be seen in the recently launched Market Pulse sections. The section allows users to keep track of independent finance news being talked about by users.
The stream however, is yet to be fully integrated to the main dash board pages of Yahoo. The service managed to raise $8.6 million in venture capital. This is a huge event for as startup like this company. The API of this service is being actively used by Bloomberg, CNN Money and Marketwatch as well.
