Before The Break: Twitter vs FaceBook vs LinkedIn In One Chart

Tyler Durden's picture


"I'm buying coz everyone is talking about it..."



We note that, according to Reuters, the IPO is 30x oversubscribed, and bear in mind that banks have advised internally to cancel all limit orders that are over 15% below the NBBO. Which means keep a trailing limit order at 14.99% or less below the NBBO in case of 'market events'.

We are sure, given all these 'extra' rules that greed will take a back seat, that the machines will cross their arms and wait patiently, and that TWTR will open just as CNBC's Bob Pisani hoped - higher with a gentle drift higher all day... </sarc>

Let the madness begin in 3...2...1....


I'd love to see the markets break today and go dark.  It might spark an investigation into the shenanigans of HFT and algos breaking the system.

The horror, the horror.

A box of shit.

Will twitter be like Linkedin? You know, if you happen to brush by anything containing any combination of the letters of the ticker, you are bombarded with endless contact, emails, and general harassment?

Where is the line to sign up to be bombarded with neutrons?

Linkedin is the second biggest joke of the decade, right behind Farcebook

I love LinkedIn.  As a self-employed sole proprietor, LinkedIn tells me when all my competitors are out of work.  Nobody updates their LinkedIn profile or sends out buddy requests when they have anything else productive to do.

The IPO is just for laughs.  Selling to the BerYellanke - that's where the real money is made.

From now on all references to Twitter must be in 140 characters or less.

No ask as of yet, waiting.

Buying 10k at market but will keep you informed.

As long as Tyler tweets, it's easy money bro. $100 by Christmas.

It's a great propaganda tool for the fascists running the country.


Look at all of Barry's followers. Easy to tweet out the talking points to his bots.

In a world run by Banksters the only thing that counts is debt. Now twitter can leverage that 69M in losses into enough debt that they will need a bailout in a few years as a TBTF social network. Meanwhile the Squid will have churned the stock a few thousand times by tweeting rumors and analyst predictions tied to their HFT. And in the end the Squid prop. desk wins 365 days a year.

I love Linkedin


best research tool out there


so many @dumfucks put their entire life story out there for any and all to review


case in point


Ms. Zer0 mentions at feeding time, I see Bob's car  has been in the driveway during the day for the past couple of weeks

I say maybe Bob lost his job

so I wanders over to Linkedin and sure enough Bob has updated his profile, not only that his whole effing lifestory is there in its pixilated glory

Ha- Sorry, Zer0H.  I didn't mean to thread-jump your comment.  I hadn't scrolled down far enough to see you yet.

But yeah, that's the useful function LinkedIn serves.

Anyone buying an outfit that doesn't produce any real goods or wealth deserves to lose everything.  You're not "investing"; you're BETTING - against the House.

LinkedIns original idea was a great, build your network of professionals. To keep in contact with those in your field, possible job oppurtunities. Granted the security and privacy lacked but the concept is cool. Somewhere they got the idea to try and be a social site like FB, MySpace etc. Then they continue adding crap like endorsments. Where you can be endorsed for shit you've never done. LinkedIn missed their mark and they'll never be FB.

Twitter has 230 "active" users? C'mon, that is absolute BULLSHIT. About 1% of the entire userbase actually Tweets. the rest follow-and active followers are probably 10% of 230million. What a pile of BS

A 140-character spam engine has a bigger market cap than Adobe or Autodesk or Intuit.

There's never been so many bigger fools as there are on November 7, 2013.
