The Bloomberg terminal, Trump tweets, and investing
The F-35 program and cost is out of control. Billions of dollars can and will be saved on military (and other) purchases after January 20th.

Bloomberg has published a how-to guide on how its 325,000 terminal users can monitor Tweets by president-elect Donald Trump and get the tweets delivered directly to their inboxes.
To be alerted to tweets by the U.S. president-elect, Bloomberg’s recently introduced natural-language search functionality helps users assess their impact. Trump’s recent tweets have caused the stock prices of Boeing and Lockheed Martin to fall.
At a terminal, a user would type “tweets from trump” in the command line and hit <GO>. This generates a scrolling feed of tweets from Trump’s Twitter handle — @realDonaldTrump.
There are two options for setting up alerts to follow Trump’s tweets depending on how a user would like to receive them. Subscribers can set up message or on-screen pop-up alerts.
