Recently Twitter has complemented traditional newswire as a source of valuable Financial information. Although there is a rich body of published research dealing with the task of ranking tweets, there has been little published research dealing with ranking tweets within a Financial context.

Our results suggest that what interests Finance is not the same as what interests the users of Twitter.
