Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and Twitter have come together to provide a real time update on the market updates on Twitter via auto Tweets, direct messages and more. This is the first time that when the exchange has partnered with a global social media platform to enable investors to access stock-related information through a digital platform.

For this, Twitter has activated four unique features to allow people to follow the markets through hourly Tweets, autoresponder Tweets for Sensex 30 stock prices, auto Direct Messages for opening and closing figures of Sensex 30, and a ‘live’ display photo that will change every two minutes to project the dynamic Sensex figure and level.

An investor can also subscribe to a special Direct Message subscription facility for Daily Opening and Closing stock price for Sensex 30 companies. This can be done by activating this facility by Tweeting ‘#Subscribe #CompanyName’. The official hashtags for companies on the BSE 30 Stock List are listed on www.bseindia.com.

Ashishkumar Chauhan, MD & CEO, BSE India on the tie-up with Twitter said, “With this tie-up with Twitter we genuinely hope that investors and businessmen, will find accurate and real-time information disseminated through Twitter very useful. We believe this association will also aid in fulfilling the mission of Digital India.”

How does it work

-During trading hours (9 am to 3.30 pm), @BSEIndia will send hourly Tweet updates of the Sensex figures, level, and Top 5 gainers and Top 5 losers. People can stay notified by following @BSEIndia and turning on mobile notifications for the account.

-Follow @BSEIndia and turn on mobile notifications to push hourly updates to your home screen

-@BSEIndia’s display photo will change every two minutes to reflect the current Sensex figure and level — with a red arrow pointing downwards when it is down, and a green arrow pointing upwards when it is up. At a glance, people can gauge the market condition.

-For Sensex 30 current stock prices, people can Tweet to @BSEIndia with the company hashtag to get the current company stock price via an auto-response. The official hashtags for companies are listed on www.bseindia.com.

-For example, you can Tweet: @BSEIndia #ICICIBANK: Tweet to @BSEIndia with #CompanyName to get an auto-response with stock price
