Well, recently I was interested in this idea of using twitter to predict stock prices.It’s not a very new idea, but it has been going around for a while, used by hedge funds.
I’m not really interested in investing a lot of money using this method, but more interested in simulation using twitter to predict the market.
Big data is really catching on in Japan and around the globe, and I am hoping my skills will be enhanced by doing twitter analysis. There are a lot of interesting ways to analyze the tweets, and I think I will be using the daily quota of Viralheat’s Sentiment Analysis API and Google’s Prediction API. I think I will import data to BigQuery soon too.
