StockTwits Racks Up Investors Relations Customers

San Diego-based StockTwits said today that its service is gaining traction with corporate customers, with over 200 investor relations departments now using its service. StockTwits said that Dell, Verizon, FedEx, and many others are using its service to distribute financial information--in a compliant way--to social media users. StockTwits began offering its investor relation product in June of last year, looking to help companies address social media users and investors without upsetting regulators. The firm's service is a micro-messaging service similar to Twitter, with a focus and extra features around discussing publicly traded stocks.
