T3 on Twitter
How can we positively handle the unpredictability of Donald Trump’s tweets?
Stocks move in split-second response to real-time information. When the 45th President of the United States tweets about a company moving to Mexico or doing anything he doesn’t approve of, their stock starts to tank. We saw an opportunity, but one that required reactions so fast we couldn’t rely on a human.
Enter the Trump and Dump Trading Platform. Using artificial intelligence, the Trump and Dump Platform identifies Trump’s tweets mentioning publicly traded companies. The algorithm assesses sentiment instantly. Tweets likely to trigger a stock drop are immediately shorted, with notifications delivered via Slack. As we close the short, any captured profits are donated to the ASPCA. So the whole thing actually saves puppies.
While the concept is funny, it’s actually a complex technical solve: Twitter monitoring, sentiment analysis, complex algorithms, real-time stock trades—all in a matter of seconds.
