Twitter Earnings Tweeted Early

The Wall Street Journal reports that Twitter’s latest earnings results were leaked today on Twitter by a company that searches for this kind of thing on public web sites before information is released.

3 Observations About This Story

1.  Twitter stock is down. So apparently breaking news on anything immediately, no matter how the information was obtained, or whether it was verified, may not be the best business plan.

2.  We wonder if Twitter made ad money related to this tweet that was posted before the stock went down. If so, that’s probably more fair than making money serving up ads to jean pockets who just spend their Twitter days clicking on everything accidentally on smart phones.

3. Why isn’t #oops trending on Twitter? As we expect that would be the perfect headline for news writers everywhere.

Follow us on Twitter if you accidentally click on things.
