The ICAEW’s Business Advice service has launched an online tool that collates breaking business news from Twitter.

The Pulse is a social tool that filters Twitter content from the UK’s top business influencers.

It offers a live, filtered visual summary of key trending topics and suggests who to follow for the latest in business and economics-related news.

The platform, which is available to view through the Business Advice service website, also manages online news from across the web, providing a one-stop-shop for all those looking to get up-to-speed with the latest business news.

Stephen Ibbotson, Director of Business at ICAEW said: “The biggest business news stories often break on Twitter before they reach the main news outlets, so we’ve developed a tool that brings together content from key influencers.

“Unless someone is sat watching Twitter all day, it is very easy to miss key information and it is also difficult to know who to follow. The Pulse does this by providing BAS web visitors with a live, filtered visual summary of the key trending topics and Twitter followers that matter to them.”
