My hosts, colleagues and friends at the StockTwits network have just received a major honor, they were named to the TIME Magazine Top 50 Websites of 2010 list, number 39 to be exact!
StockTwits is a by-product of all that financial chatter on Twitter. Think of the website as a social ticker — instead of tracking stock movements, it tracks the ongoing discussion around each stock. Find someone whose advice you trust, add them to a watch list and get a real-time stream of investing insight. The unvarnished info can be a refreshing switch from all those makeup-encrusted anchors on financial-news shows.
What StockTwits has created and is creating is nothing short of revolutionary. The guys and gals in our growing community already know that, the StockTwits bloggers and personalities like myself have already bought into this idea whole-heartedly.
It’s nice to see that the rest of the world is finally catching on.
For those who don’t already know – the most real-deal, real-time discussion of markets, trading, investing and economic insight is happening 24/7 on StockTwits. All you need to join in is a handle, how cool is that?
