StockTwits for Investor Relations is Cranking!
Since launching in June, we’ve signed up 125 public companies including a long list of great ones across sectors such as $CME, $DELL, $HPQ, $CHK and $RDSA.
Last night, StockTwits hosted LinkedIn ($LNKD) microblogging their first ever earnings. They were able to distribute links and updates directly into the stream where investors were parsing, debating and trading the news as it was breaking.
The IR Suite is great for public companies as it provides them a frictionless way to distribute real time information directly to the StockTwits community as well as across multiple media outlets including Yahoo! Finance, CNN Money and Reuters.
Public companies are loving the compliance feature that we’ve built directly into StockTwitsIR and in combination with Slideshare for displaying earnings call slides, its makes for a wicked combination.
LinkedIn’s Mario Sundar had this to say:
As a social media company, it was a no-brainer to use Slideshare to share our earnings call slides on our corporate blog. While Slideshare made it easy for our readers and followers to share this content virally, StockTwits ensured that our status updates and tweets were compliant, both necessary components for an effective IR strategy.
Our smart members get it too. Here’s one from last night that is dead on:
LinkedIn is a pioneer in professional social. They soooo get how useful and easy StockTwitsIR makes reporting new corporate information in real time.
