I am not truly sure how Dubai will play out on stock prices for the end of this week, but with Stocktwits , I did not have to wait too long to voice an opinion, my horror , disdain, and some jokes.
Steven and Mike from SMB Capital emailed us that it might be a good idea to go live this morning for 30 minutes and talk through ideas with the community live on Stocktwits TV. That took all of 2 seconds to agree. Of course, it’s not HD quality and we don’t have the cool production bells and whistles, but it was calm and responsible.
Every week now we are seeing the extra possibilities/benefits of the real-time format of Stocktwits for disseminating financial news.
As more people both use it to eavesdrop and to contribute some cool things are happening.
1. The depth of ticker coverage is making the discovery aspect even better.
2. Discussions can take place any time of the day and links from around the world can be shared instantly to help users and other news organizations shape financial stories.
3. The community is better at filtering out the really good stuff.
4. (Update – I Forgot in my haste) Companies like @cmegroup and @cboe are leading the charge as public companies, communicating with their investors and sharing ideas and @hpnews is actually disseminating their quarterly financial information through Twitter/Stocktwits.
Early this morning ‘Market Nut’ pulled the relevant stories on Dubai from around the globe and posted them on her Stocktwits Blog for us.
As Phil likes to now say:
‘A plane lands safely on the Hudson each day on Stocktwits’
We are all in charge of Stocktwits now and it is good to see a community growing this fast, continue to act in a responsible way.
