Meet the Twitter account that helped shave over $5 billion off Twitter's market cap
Twitter was scheduled to release its quarterly earnings after the New York Stock Exchange closed this evening, but things took a different turn when the Twitter account of a financial services company got to them first, publishing key details nearly an hour early. The account, Selerity, broke news that Twitter missed its revenue expectations and that its users grew. Between the leak and the bad numbers, the incident quickly drove Twitter’s stock down around 18 percent.
