Are you following the #XBRL hashtag?
In my previous post I have wrote about the significance of the #XBRL hashtag. If you track this tag, you probably won’t need any other source of information regarding this topic. It contains all the news right after they appear on the internet. A few individuals and companies track the events on the entire internet daily, and industriously post them on this tag. Track the tag for a while and you’ll find out who they are.
A couple of days ago I asked myself a question – Which individuals and companies track the Twitter #XBRL hashtag? Are those just XBRL Solution Providers and XBRL enthusiasts or are there also the XBRL SEC Filers? In one of my tweets I have ask the Question:
I considered making a new Twitter list “XBRL SEC Filters” based on the results and implementing there all the Twitter accounts of those companies that belong to this group.
After a few days I repeated the call:
Only one response from @MaxGang.
Is it possible that on the timeline there aren’t any other XBRL SEC Filers? Maybe there are, but they didn’t want to respond? Honestly, I didn’t expect hundreds nor thousands, but a few, sure.
In any case, if you are one of the XBRL SEC Filers, or are about to become one, or you are in another way obliged to deliver financial reports in the XBRL form, it would be good to start tracking this tag, if you haven’t already. Trust me, you will learn a lot of useful information which can help you in the decision-making, and maybe save you a lot of money.
