A look at Twitter messages in 2012 mentioning $SPY and S&P500 Symbols

While working up my data analysis chapter of my dissertation, I came across some interesting tidbits of information and thought I’d share.

Nothing here is earth-shattering and there’s not much I (or you) can do with this…but I thought it interesting and hope someone else out there does too. I’ve shared other findings before – and continue to share my daily Bear/Bull Ratio via my Trade The Sentiment site, which is an outcome of this research.

For the data collection phase of my dissertation, I collected Twitter messages for all stocks in the S&P500 index and the SPY ETF itself.  There are many great pieces of knowledge that I’ve gathered from this work – some I’ve shared but most I won’t share because I need something to put into the dissertation. :)

So…here’s some data that you might find interesting (or maybe you won’t). Without further ado – and without interpretation, here you go:
