Regarding Goldman Sachs news, the switch to direct news release will give Goldman Sachs more control over dissemination of its data. The firm had reportedly considered making this type of change for a while, and the increasing use of Twitter for data dissemination helped speed the decision, the Wall Street Journal reported. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) started allowing companies to use social media to disclose material corporate information 2 years ago in 2013 and a growing number of other firms have followed suit, including Twitter itself.
