https://assets.econsultancy.com/images/resized/0002/7766/sentiment_1-blog-third.pngBack in 2011, sentiment analysis for Twitter was just beginning to phase into mainstream business conciousness.

So, when London-based DCM Capital announced a hedge fund based on Twitter sentiment it was a bold move that ultimately didn't gain the exposure the company were looking for, and the project closed after a few short months.

According to MediaWeek, Bloomberg's initial plans are to make BusinessWeek "bigger, glossier and more international".

It will also take on BusinessWeek's liabilities, which could far exceed that amount.
