Bloomberg doesn’t offer RSS feeds. While I’m not aware of the official story on this, when I was in NYC a few weeks ago I asked them about it and they basically said they don’t want people consuming their content on non-Bloomberg sites. Okay, I think that’s wrong but it’s their content so they can do whatever they want with it.
Interesting things happen to information when it becomes digital; your intentions as a publisher about how it should not be used often don’t work out like you planned. I really like Bloomberg news but I’m not going to hover over their site all day just to catch the latest updates, and apparently someone else didn’t like that approach…
It turns out that Google News does syndicate Bloomberg headlines with a link back to the source article. Using Twitterfeed, someone who shall remain nameless (and it wasn’t me, really) pumped the RSS feed for Google News through Yahoo Pipes to extract the Bloomberg headlines and then fed them into Twitter. The result is Bloombergbiz. Pure awesomeness.
This is my last twitter post of the day, I promise.
