Inside Investor Relations have just published “Investors explore social media: A look at why institutional investors have started using social media.” This piece absolutely underscores our motives (view our announcement here) for embedding StockTwits IR into our exclusive Capital Markets Visibility 365 program.
Investors, both individual and institutional, are using social media. IR departments should, at the very least, be agile listeners. That’s it for now. Just listen. Capital Markets Visibility 365 provides IROs the full StockTwits monitoring and measurement capabilities simultaneously with the PR Newswire’s comprehensive news distribution and shareholder communications solutions.
