StockTwits® is a financial communications platform for the financial and investing community. The company was founded in 2008 by long-time investor Howard Lindzon. StockTwits created the $TICKER tag to enable and organize “streams” of information around stocks and markets across the web and social media. These streams provide new forms of insight, ideas and information that are used by investors, analysts, media and others as they research stocks and manage their investments.

Today, more than 300,000 investors, market professionals and public companies share information and ideas about the market and individual stocks using StockTwits, producing streams that are viewed by an audience of over 40 million across the financial web and social media platforms.

StockTwits streams consist of ideas, links, charts and other important financial data, summarized within 140 character messages. Users, which include analysts, media and investors of all types, as well as the public companies themselves, contribute to the stream. Investors, and others interested in stocks and markets, can easily follow individual stocks, specific contributors, as well as view the StockTwits stream across dozens of financial sites that integrate the stream including Yahoo! Finance, CNNMoney, Reuters,, and The Globe and Mail.

The StockTwits platform is also integrated with major social platforms, including Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn – making it easy to incorporate financial communications into your broader social interactions when, and only when, you choose to do so.

StockTwits content is focused solely on investing, and our technology and staff work to filter out unrelated messages and SPAM, ensuring the remaining content is only the most valuable and relevant discussions specifically about stocks and markets.
