Re: Linguistic sentiment analysis
@jabailo:  Interesting.  Of course, I'm sure this has all been taken into account.

For instance, there was one modestly successful hedge fund (Derwent) that was based on a an algorithm that monitored the sentiment of Tweets (sentiment on ALL sorts of topics...not just about business/stocks) and linked the performance of the stock market to the positivity or negativity of Tweets, finding that its performance could be predicted up to 6 days in advance.

Presumably, snowball effects of positivity or negativity do take place -- and affect markets accordingly.

Re: Linguistic sentiment analysis
It would also be interesting to see if there are memetic chain reactions.

That is, does one person complaining about something, influence others do mock and do the same, and pass it along.    Same with praise, though something about human nature tells me complaining has a stronger draw.

Then, of course, if you want to start influencing, you could see the effect of injecting your own statements into the social noosphere.

Linguistic sentiment analysis
Linguistic sentiment analysis is very powerful indeed.  It has been used to successfully predict the stock market, elections, and sales.  Seems like telecoms looking to it is an "about time" decision.
