    Traditionally, the financial news powerhouse has connected with terminal subscribers when they arrived at work. There, they can each can call up Bloomberg's proprietary blend of financial data and news from their desktop monitors.

    Bloomberg gets into rapid-fire explainer journalism with breaking Q&As

    Negative interest rates. Corporate inversion. The monthly job report. If you asked the media world to rank the country's sexiest stories, most journalists would probably put these pretty low on their list (with some exceptions).

    Fake Bloomberg story has Twitter mulling $31 billion takeover offer, hikes share price

    It was total baloney, even if somebody probably made money off the baloney.

    There was an Internet kerfuffle Tuesday with what purported to be a Bloomberg News story about Twitter mulling a big purchase offer.

    It looked like a Bloomberg tale (though some cognoscenti did instantly discern some stylistic mistakes) but quickly inspired a formal, real Bloomberg tweet that it was a fake.
