Reddit, Stocktwits join Twitter Feeds, Deal with S&P Brings Vast Supply of Untapped Data

John Lothian News was the first media company to take an interest in Social Market Analytics, Inc. when it first started. We recently caught up with its founder and CEO, Joe Gits, for an update on the company and trends in social media and trading analytics.

We asked Gits for an update on the company and the progress it has made over the years. We asked him about the natural language processor he started with, which was an open source tool, and the proprietary natural language processor he developed. 

SMA has expanded into other feeds and data sources, including the Reddit feed and the Stocktwits feed. We asked him about how those feeds are different from Twitter and unique.

We asked him if we wanted to get the Reddit, Stocktwits and Twitter feeds from SMA, what is the best way to do that? We also asked about the SMA dashboard they developed.

ESG has emerged as a big subject and Gits had some thoughts on what information can be found in various reports and feeds about it. 

Lastly, we asked Gits where SMA goes from here and where the future would lead the company.

We visit more than 100 financial news websites daily (Would YOU do that?)

There is No Way to Thank Everyone, but Some People Must be Mentioned

There is No Way to Thank Everyone, but Some People Must be Mentioned

I wish I could share this news of my being named to the FIA Hall of Fame with my mother and father, but both have passed, my mother in 2022 and my father in 2003. Even though my father has been gone for nearly a generation, his light shines through me via his wisdom, tolerance, community service, faith and love of family. I always said that using both of my college degrees, one in finance, the other in journalism, made my mother happy. As a teacher, education was important to her. But my parents insisted the only thing they were going to give me besides love was an education and then I was on my own.
