A group of my friends and I created a platform that continuously listens to tweets mentioning various publicly traded companies and we compare the general audience’s sentiment to companies’ stock value! It was a fun project we did for EECS 448: Software Engineering. The project is well-documented with some pretty pictures and results that we got. Answer? Well, after applying some signal processing techniques, filtering out bad data, matching timesets, we found that there is a very loose correlation. Sometimes it’s very good! Sometimes, it’s the complete opposite.
