DEARBORN - This quarter, Ford will be live-tweeting its earnings news on both Twitter and StockTwits. StockTwits is a social platform for the financial community that uses $F as a tag for all mentions of our stock. In fact, StockTwits introduced the idea of $TICKER on Twitter and it actually works as a hashtag for mentions of any stock symbol. We began using StockTwits to share financial news last quarter and are excited to continue the relationship since it allows us to reach 40 million people who seek investment and financial news on social media.
In addition to sharing our earnings news, our CFO, Bob Shanks, will be participating in a chat on StockTwits. We’ll collect questions sent via StockTwits Monday July 22-Wednesday July 24, 2013 and Bob will answer on Thursday the 25th.
To see an example, check out the summary of Bob Shanks’ StockTwits chat last quarter: http://blog.stocktwits.com/qa-with-ford-motor-company-cfo-robert-shanks/
