Through a partnership with SecondMarket, the marketplace for illiquid assets, we are excited to deliver to our community at StockTwits the capability to comment on an entire network of private companies. We love what SecondMarket is doing, and are delighted to be able to provide a real time messaging and idea sharing and messaging platform for them.
You will be able to find the Private Companies stream on the Stream Navigation Panel on the left side bar of the website.
To find a particular company’s’ ticker, simply browse through the Private Company Database and then tweet using that ticker symbol.
Each Private Company has their own symbol page, where you can easily view the tweets as well as view the company profile on The Business Insider, TechCrunch, GigaOm, CNNMoney, and TechMeme. Check out this one for $SKYPE:
We are excited to be working alongside SecondMarket and can’t wait to see the conversation surrounding private companies blossom. It’s really going to be fun to see some of these great companies move from the Private Company Stream to the Public Equities Stream in the future!
