In the past, when it came to investing, most people immediately imagined piles of documents and endless visits to banks, looking for brokerage firms.  The idea of investing seemed too unrealistic and the process too complicated and burdensome. 

This all changed when it became possible to invest via the internet. 

Modern online trading platforms for investing are your stock market in the palm of your hand. A few minutes for registration, a minimum package of documents, a really low minimum starting amount - and you can buy shares of any company, including recognized leaders of the world market. 

Now there's no need to waste your time meeting with a broker, agreeing when it's convenient for him. Now you go to an online investment platform exactly when it is convenient for you. By signing up for an online investment platform you have access to comprehensive information on share price movements, trading conditions, analytical tools to determine the appropriateness of investing in a particular company and the like. 

You can invest in anything and from anywhere. Our review today is about Twitter stock investing opportunities. 

Why do investors choose Twitter shares?

In this information age, the popularity of social media has never been greater. We communicate through social networks, make business contacts and buy and sell through social media. 

Twitter is one of the most popular social networks in the world. Twitter's history began in March 2006 as a research project of the San Francisco-based company Odeo, initially for internal use. Jack Dorsey, a young programmer who worked at Odeo, introduced the notion of an individual SMS service for communicating with a small group. The first prototype of the new service, which Jack created in just three weeks to demonstrate to colleagues and management at Odeo Inc. was launched on March 21, 2006. On that day, at 8.50pm PST, Jack posted the first ever tweet: "Just setting up my twttr". Thus was the beginning of an IT giant that is now worth billions of dollars.

In the summer of 2006, the first beta version of Twitter was released. By this time it had already had a couple of hundred registered users and the creators had to implement a system for authentication and account security. Not only employees of Odeo Inc. but also their friends, family members, and later anyone else who wished to use the service were invited to join.

In 2007 representatives of Twitter take part in the conference South by Southwest Interactive. The marketing idea was amazing.

The staff set up 2 plasma screens in the halls that broadcasted messages from Twitter. Several hundred conference participants were able to communicate with each other in real time via tweets.

Subsequently, they actively mentioned the service on the Internet and bloggers spread advertisements for the service. The number of tweets sent increased to 60,000 per day, up from 20,000 previously.

Today, Twitter is truly a giant, with a total of 1.3 billion accounts as of the beginning of 2021. Twitter has 330 million monthly active users (MAU). 500 million tweets are sent every day. 

On 7 November 2013, Twitter Inc. held an IPO on the New York Stock Exchange and raised $1.8 billion.

As of the date of this review, Twitter's share price is $63.84  (+$176.91 for the year).

How to invest in Twitter shares?

Twitter shares are traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) as well as on other exchanges, for example: Frankfurt, Hamburg, Düsseldorf, Stuttgart, Berlin, Munich, London, Hanover.

To buy Twitter shares, you will need an intermediary - a licensed broker who works with one of the above exchanges. Choosing a good broker is a very important point. It is the quality of the broker's services that will largely determine the subsequent success of your stock market transactions. The broker must have a license to conduct brokerage activities, as well as all the necessary permits required by law.

All online transactions will be made through an online brokerage platform, which will be provided to you by the broker. The user-friendliness, the user-friendly and intuitive interface, as well as the informative nature and the range of tools offered for trading, all have an impact on the quality of your experience. Therefore, when choosing a broker, be sure to study its online trading platform. Become familiar with the amount of commissions for the services provided. Find out whether there is a mobile version of the app - it is very convenient.

Ask about the broker's business reputation. Check the reviews of experienced market players about the broker, consult experts.

The classic investment method is the dividend method, but Twitter has not paid a dividend since its IPO, investing all its profits in the development of the company.

Perhaps Twitter will decide to pay a dividend in the future, which would certainly attract investors. 

For now, let's look at another option, namely derivatives trading. 

A CFD (Contracts For Difference) is a way of trading price movements without directly buying or selling a financial instrument. The idea behind a CFD is that one party will pay the other the difference between the current and the future price of an asset.

The success of a CFD trade depends on your ability to correctly predict the rise or fall in the price of an asset. Not only can you profit from a rising stock price, but also from a falling one, as long as you have predicted a falling price. 

The greatest advantage of trading CFDs is the opportunity to use leverage, thus increasing your investment amount and profit potential. However, please note that by using leverage, the risk of the transaction also increases. Leverage is recommended only for very experienced traders.

It is worth remembering that, despite all the convenience and seeming simplicity and accessibility, investing is a risky business and involves both the possibility of making a profit and, unfortunately, the possible loss of funds. 

We strongly advise that you undertake education, as the platform offers in the form of lessons and video clips to ensure that your stock market transactions do not end in a financial disaster. 

You may also use other specialized literature. A potential investor should have a fundamental basic knowledge of how the stock market works. In addition to theoretical basic knowledge, you should understand that the value of shares is influenced by many factors, such as political and economic processes in and between countries, as well as force majeure situations such as man-made disasters or natural catastrophes and the like.

The financial services provided by this website carry a high level of risk and can result in the loss of all your funds. You should never invest money that you cannot afford to lose
