The Equity Culture's Demise Has Been Greatly Exaggerated

Memo to “business” journalists who are busying themselves with clever little pieces on “The Death of the Equity Culture” – not only is it not dead, the Equity Culture is more connected and vibrant than ever before.

How do I know?

How about a little miracle called StockTwits?

Forged in the depths of the most brutal bear market in living history, the StockTwits community has given an identity and an outlet to those of us who are madly in love with stocks.  There are over 100,000 of us obsessing over equities 24/7 after little more than a year.  How many more of us will there be in 6 months?

And this week StockTwits cut the ribbon on a shiny, new, digital Temple to the Equity Culture in the form of their new Beta site.  Anyone who is serious about the markets, from options to stocks to currencies to ETFs, now has a slick, fast interface to all of the best charts, quotes, videos, blogs, news outlets and commentary imaginable – all from one web page!

So maybe this is death, because as a stock fanatic, I am truly in heaven.

Long live the Equity Culture.  Thank you StockTwits.
