Focus on Companies: StockTwits

June 12, 2012 James Heinsman Company Spotlight

Now there is a social networking website especially geared to investors and anyone interested in learning more about investing from people with similar interests and backgrounds.

StockTwits was founded in 2008 by investor Howard Lindzon and first began as an investment chatter forum using financial posts from Twitter. Now StockTwits has over 150,000 investors, public companies and market professionals using this platform to share information and ideas.

This social networking site allows users to organize and enable “streams” of information which deal with stocks and other financial markets found on the web and in other social media.

StockTwits recently announced a partnership with PR Newswire. PR will be offering StockTwits as part of their “Capital Market Visibility 365” campaign. This partnership should help increase StockTwits’ profile.
