StockTwits is a microblogging social network, similar to Twitter, but monothematic: stock market investments. It touches on every theme involving the world of finance, but doesn't have the versatility of other social networks. It’s a simple enough idea: connect people who are interested in the market so they can comment, in real time, the changes that affect different products.
Obviously, the application brings together experts, amateurs, brokers, and analysts on to the same site, with the goal of communication that benefits all.
If there ever was a sector that needed instant communication more than anything, it’s the stock market. Creating a microblogging social network for the finance sector is an excellent idea. It's tremendously useful for investors. StockTwits gives market information in real time, suggests sought-after businesses and themes to follow, and the rest of the basic functions of social network (private messages, publish, comment, RT, like). The interface is well designed, fluid, and intuitive.
The app is only available in English and the majority of users use this language to share information.
