Traders buy up dying ‘TWTRQ’ stock, mistaking it for Twitter

Vlad Savov, The Verge:

Twitter shares aren’t yet available for public purchase, but that didn’t halt millions of transactions in the moribund Tweeter stock, which trades under the initialism TWTRQ, close but not the same as Twitter’s upcoming TWTR ticker.

This is hilarious. Go home, stock traders. Some of you must be drunk. (I will also repeat that I think Twitter should have chosen ‘RLRT’ as their stock symbol. Missed opportunity.)
