IU professor using Twitter to predict stock market

It's park of a method he created to follow all tweets and bases them on emotional content. It takes words and phrases to predict how the stock market will do.
The professor said its accuracy varies, but some tests have shown it to be 86% accurate on predicting the DOW.
