Trading Twitter

Nov 07, 2013

Not that it’s a big deal or anything, but you may have heard that Twitter just priced their IPO. David Teicher at Advertising Age appropriately wrote, “Top story: Twitter.”

In honor of the IPO, here’s a photo of the bird logo on the #NYSE, taken by Anthony Quintano. Kristen Sze with ABC7 News San Francisco tweeted: “Nice pic.” Ben Wright at Financial News said, “Twitter has taken over the New York Stock Exchange.”

BusinessWeek also wrote about Twitter - on their cover, no less - and now gives us insight into The Surprising Sophistication of Twitter. Josh Tyrangiel there wrote, “How we made this week's @BW cover, complete with freaked out notes from our lawyer.” Andrew Beaujon with Poynter Online said, “The @BW twitter cover originally looked like Eustace Tilley.” Matt Haber wrote, “These guys have all the fun: A look inside @Tyrangiel's and @Mr_Turley's cover creation process at @BW.” Michael Calderone from Huffington Post explained, “Lawyers reject first Twitter cover, so @BW comes up with sophisticated, Henry Luce-era bird.” Zach Seward with Quartz added, “First version of Businessweek's cover was the New Yorker's Eustace Tilley transformed into the Twitter bird.”

Also in BusinessWeek, you can read about An iPhone Tester Caught in Apple's Supply Chain. Naomi O'Leary at Reuters said, “How Nepalese subsistence farmers became indentured labourers at an Apple iPhone supply factory, then left to starve.” Flynn McRoberts at Bloomberg News explained: “Cheated, trapped and abandoned. One man's journey across the world to an Apple supplier #Apple.” Pierre Briançon also at Reuters added, “Buying the privilege of working in an Asian iPhone factory - Readissimo, on Apple's supply chain.”
