Asia’s first stock exchange, BSE (@BSEIndia) and Twitter announced a partnership today to provide real-time market updates on Twitter via auto Tweets, DMs and more.

The partnership is a move towards democratising financial information for the business community in one of the fastest growing economies in the world, and to provide on-demand financial information and content to users.
 
Twitter has activated four unique features to allow people to follow the markets through hourly Tweets, autoresponder Tweets for Sensex 30 stock prices, auto Direct Messages for opening and closing figures of Sensex 30, and a ‘live’ display photo that will change every two minutes to project the dynamic Sensex figure and level.
