Five reasons why all finance pros should be using Twitter – Reason #4: Unbiased info

My name is Sverre Rørvik Nilsen, but I'm probably better known by my Twitter handle @finansakrobat. I've been navigating the waters of Twitter since 2009 and I've learned a thing or two about how it works. These are some of the most important lessons in relation to finance: five reasons why all finance professionals should be using Twitter. This time out, we'll look at at Reason #4: Twitter is unbiased.

Reason #4: Twitter is unbiased

The real problem with reporting, is the reporter. You never know what kind of biases they have.

So if you want to avoid that kind of problem, you simply add more data points in. More reporters.

This is the reason Infront has created the Newswire on Infront Tweetwires.

Using this list you can read about a situation, like the crisis in Ukraine, from all sides of the situation. And make up your own mind. You can read Bloomberg, Fox News, Fars, RT, etc. And when you've done that, you know how everyone is spinning it, and you're probably pretty close to the objective truth.

In addition to this, you get to access the source directly. When the bomb exploded in the center of Oslo in 2011, I was one of the closest witnesses. Since I was one of the few people who actually saw the blast, I could tell the story directly on Twitter after I had gotten to safety. This is the first tweet by the way.

The same thing happens every time something occurs in the world. Someone really close to the action is right there, and you can talk to them. We saw this when troop movements from Russia into Ukraine was a big issue; journalists were tweeting out what was happening.
