StreamBase Systems is looking to take advantage of the Twitter craze by connecting its complex event processing (CEP) platform to the microblogging site, providing traders with a new source of news and information.
Nice try by StreamBase but trading on Twitter doesn't fly. Put it this way: Would you push the buy or sell button on the basis of a few anonymous messages picked up on a Yahoo stocktipping message board? The more seriously Twittter is taken, the more interesting
it becomes as a means of spreading disinformation, and the less value it subsequently has as a trusted source of actionable information.
