EarlyBird’s CEO and creator, Danny Watkins has a background in banking IT. Former head of technology for a leading investment bank, Danny recognised that while there was a need for financial professionals to have access to Twitter, many firms blocked the social network on their trading floors because it could be used for market abuse.
Danny set about creating a read-only version of Twitter optimised for trading and research desks. After developing and piloting his idea inside a major investment bank, in close collaboration with compliance, IT and security teams, EarlyBird was born. It is now used by some of the world’s largest banks, investment houses and hedge funds.
Understanding first-hand the headaches that can arise for IT departments whenever new software is introduced into organisations, Danny has made adoption of EarlyBird as simple and as straightforward as possible.
