You can check the stock market “price” of your favorite Twitter feed at twiDAQ–a stock market that assigns imaginary monetary values for Twitter feeds.
The site measures a Twitter feed’s performance, adjusting the ever-changing value for that feed and tracking the value like a stock price on Wall Street. AllTwitter has more about how to find industry leaders through the virtual stock market, finding leaders in fields like Publishing or Media.
Check it out: “Two things effect a stock’s price; trading and daily-earnings. Trading has a far greater effect than earnings so we’ll look at that first. Basically as stock becomes more popular ( more people are buying it ) its price will rise. As more people start to sell a stock its price will fall. All stocks on twiDAQ are said to “earn”. Think of this like a real company’s turn-over. Earnings are calculated from the number of tweets, mentions, retweets, followers and listings a stock has. So the more people follow a stock, or retweet a stock’s tweets the more it could be said to be earning.”
