Track Your Favorite Twitter Feed’s Stock

You can check the stock market “price” of your favorite Twitter feed at twiDAQ–a stock market that assigns imaginary monetary values for Twitter feeds.

The site measures a Twitter feed’s performance, adjusting the ever-changing value for that feed and tracking the value like a stock price on Wall Street. AllTwitter has more about how to find industry leaders through the virtual stock market, finding leaders in fields like Publishing or Media.

Check it out: “Two things effect a stock’s price; trading and daily-earnings. Trading has a far greater effect than earnings so we’ll look at that first. Basically as stock becomes more popular ( more people are buying it ) its price will rise. As more people start to sell a stock its price will fall. All stocks on twiDAQ are said to “earn”. Think of this like a real company’s turn-over. Earnings are calculated from the number of tweets, mentions, retweets, followers and listings a stock has. So the more people follow a stock, or retweet a stock’s tweets the more it could be said to be earning.”
