WSJ streams are a new interface from The Wall Street Journal for reading about large events, breaking news stories, markets coverage, and other areas at the core of the Journal’s reporting.
A stream is a single page that a reader can leave open and, without reloading, watch the news develop in real-time including headlines, articles, breaking news alerts, markets data, documents, photos, Twitter tweets and generally any new information about the subject or event. Readers can also choose to follow the updates on Facebook or Twitter through dedicated accounts for each stream.
The WSJ uses WordPress as the tool to integrate content from multiple CMS, APIs, and services to provide a centralized stream of activity.
Below is the WSJ Stream for the Oscars which happened this past weekend. The Wall Street Journal plans on using more streams in the future, such as for the Arizona Primary, Super Tuesday, and more.
