What’s the event all about? Recent years have seen economic power shift—or tilt—south and east. As this trend accelerates, the media industry will react to a stronger demand for increasingly granular coverage in markets beyond the developed G3 economies. FT Tilt, a premium online financial news and analysis service focused exclusively on the emerging world, responds to this demand by combining a network of dedicated writers stationed in regional bureaus around the world with aspects of social media that have never before been employed in journalism. Paul Murphy, Editor-in-Chief of FT Tilt, will provide an overview of how this new service and community helps connect the dots across the emerging world to present a holistic view of this vibrant and increasingly central story.

Following the FT Tilt presentation, StockTwits is proud to present “News Dissemination in a Social Finance World”, facilitated by Howard Lindzon, Founder and CEO of StockTwits. A panel of experts from the traditional financial media world including the FT’s Cardiff Garcia, Reporter, FT Alphaville will discuss the changes that are, and will be, taking place in the market as a result of social media, particularly around news and information flow.

This event will take place at the New York Stock Exchange thanks to NYSE Euronext, a leading global operator of financial markets and provider of innovative trading technologies, who are generously providing the space for this event.
