Last month, I sat with Justin and Ian at StockTwits HQ and they walked me through Trade App, member FINRA/SIPC, which is scheduled to launch on September 25.
I was impressed with the development of the technology, as I mentioned that day in the tweet below. Trade App is a commission-free mobile first trading platform with a social feature set that I can’t write about just yet. In addition, the StockTwits community is thriving and continues to grow with over 200,000 daily messages.

So when Justin called and asked me if I was interested in helping out with the launch, adoption and community building, I said yes right away.
Fast forward a mere 10 days and I am excited to announce being named Chief Community Officer at StockTwits. I’m going to be focusing on cultivating the growing StockTwits community and steering the launch and growth of Trade App.
For those of you who are not aware, I’m an early investor in StockTwits and spent 4 years there early on helping to build the community and shape the culture.
Later this month, we are planning to open Trade App up to the public on a limited basis. We think it is going to be well received. I’m looking to connect with sharers, mentors and educators so shoot me an email at [email protected] if you are interested.
