CHICAGO AND CORONADO, CALIF., MAY 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Ditto Trade, the only online broker to allow individuals to participate in the actual trades of experienced investors, and StockTwits, the leading online communications platform for the financial and investing community, today announced the launch of a new Premium Ditto Profile.
StockTwits CEO Howard Lindzon
Before meeting Howard Lindzon, CEO and cofounder of StockTwits a largely successful social networking website (120,000 members and counting) geared toward the world of finance I envisioned something of a (stereotypical) “New York City stockbroker”: brusque demeanor, high-strung, etc. When I did meet him, however, he was the exact opposite of my assumptions: very relaxed, funny and courteous, and seemed to reflect the calm, casual vibe of Coronado. He, like many non-native Coronadans, visited Coronado on vacation with his family (in 2009) and decided it to be the perfect new home for his family and business. He now lives in the Village with his wife and kids, and has headquartered StockTwits in several office spaces on the top floor of an Ynez Place building.
