Investis is pleased to announce its partnership with StockTwits in Europe. StockTwits has grown into the leading social media platform for investors in North America, and now distributes content to over 6 million monthly users via financial news sites such as Yahoo Finance, CNN Money and Reuters.
The partnership reflects the increasing demand for direct communication and engagement between public companies and key stakeholders. As Europeans increasingly turn to social media for up to the minute information on companies, StockTwits is set to become an established part of the corporate communications landscape.
As companies with ADRs already have a presence on StockTwits though the $TICKER, Investis will be acting as the point of contact for those European companies with North American listings. Launched last year, the StockTwits IR Solution gives companies with ADRs access to a host of publishing and monitoring tools that over 200 publicly listed companies are already using.
Howard Lindzon, co-founder and CEO of StockTwits said:
StockTwits was setup as a place where investors, analysts, public companies and all other interested parties could share ideas. It has become an established part of the way people gather information about listed companies in the US and Canada, and it’s growing by the day.
Over the past year we’ve seen increasing levels of interest from European communities. Our partnership with Investis will allow companies listed both in Europe and North America, to access the on-going conversation.
Justin Walters, CEO of Investis said:
StockTwits is a pioneering service. It’s the world’s leading social media platform for investors, and European companies need access to the thousands of conversations around them every day. The US is a huge market for European companies and we are pleased to be offering them the chance to engage on such a great platform.
