Lot’s of questions and emails about trading and the markets so if a few hundred of you sign up for Twitter and get involved, I will start using it as a think out loud community tool for investing. I do now, but I would like to use it more as I think the market is going to be wild for a while. I would rather ‘twit’ the few bigger trading ideas I do than blog them and read a good stream of yours. Faster and timelier for everyone.
Back in May when I signed up, I said the same thing . The product is still primarily used for nerds for shameless promotion and I got tired of ‘twittering’ from bathrooms. I kept dropping my blackberry in the toilet when peeing as well. In a tough tape Twitter, it has utility. I want streaming market updates from people I trust, not a link to a post talking about web 2.0.
It will take you 30 seconds.
Andy, Phil, Dr. Brett and others are great market ‘twits’ I follow. Too many nerds talking about absolutely nothing and it’s time we create a useful stream for the tool. I wish Fred, Dick, Bijan and the rest of the VC community used it more for that than just random thoughts and updates. I am glad to check in on twitter once a day for catching up on my smartypant dudes and friends, but not leave it on live.
Don’t be lazy and if you sign up, don’t overtwitter either.
