Compile a lists of Official Twitter Accounts for companies in the FTSE 100 and the FTSE 250
FTSE 100: http://www.londonstockexchange.com/exchange/prices-and-markets/stocks/indices/summary/summary-indices-constituents.html?index=UKX
FTSE 250: http://www.londonstockexchange.com/exchange/prices-and-markets/stocks/indices/summary/summary-indices-constituents.html?index=MCX
That is 350 companies in all... (together referred to as the FTSE 350)
One company may have multiple official twitter twitter accounts.
For example, ARM has official Twitter accounts for different parts of their business, e.g. @ARMCommunity, @ARMEmbedded, @ARMMobile, @ARMLowPwr etc.
All official accounts for a company must be included. This is important - as many companies have many official twitter accounts.
Record the official accounts in two spreadsheets ftse_100.csv and ftse_250.csv (these will be provided pre-populated with the FTSE symbols and company names)
Each line will be of the format...
so for example,
BARC, BARCLAYS, @Barclays
BARC, BARCLAYS, @BarclaysOnline
BARC, BARCLAYS, @barclayswealth
TATE, TATE & LYLE, @TateLyleSugars
Some companies will not have official twitter accounts - just leave blank.
Milestone 1: FTSE 100 list

The accuracy of the data will be checked programatically.
