About Public Dissentiment

Public Dissentiment is an online tool that helps protesters negatively impact the price of a publicly traded company’s stock by communicating with algorithmic market makers. By using the same algorithmic sentiment analysis techniques as financial trading bots, the app generates posts for social media that link to news stories that will be viewed negatively by algorithmic market makers.

If enough of these posts are generated in the same time frame, uncertainty about the targeted company’s stock will be created, temporarily affecting the price of the stock, consequently making the company’s shareholders aware of the public’s negative sentiment towards them.
