Take note. I absolutely love when this happens, because even though seemingly insignificant, it has mattered in the past.
I can recall the few times I have written on a topic, then been quickly engaged by some StockTwat or Tweeter Reader over an idea I’ve written on. Again, rarely does this happen, but the times it has it ended up being significant.
That quick reply I get from that crowd usually comes from a place of inexperience. To get an instant reaction means I am thinking outside of “group think.” Or it means I have triggered an emotional reaction. That’s usually where I want to be.
Day-to-day, most leave me alone to my own opinions. They either read, or don’t read…which is where I want to be. I try not to harass other people and hope I don’t get harassed in return. I like to stay in my quiet corner of the internet so to speak.
As for some of my recent online responses to a write up, here are three of my favorites.
Most recently, @*********, who jumped me for my boolish opinion on the markets back in late February last year. Which conversely, was the bottom.
(note: the above image was created to show the resemblance of Buffalo Bill, but I felt terrible and never sent the tweet. Apologies in advance.)
Remember @AlphaMatt18 who out of nowhere blew me up for wanting to buy $TWTR roughly three weeks after it’s IPO? For the love of hilarious, I can’t find the screenshot I took back in 2013.
If you remember that trade I took, it was one of my best ever. Only a few days after the comment, Twitter went on to more than double in price, as I called out here near the $TWTR IPO bottom.
In my last post about just the idea of wanting to short $AMZN, look at what @ChengizKhan had to say to me, as well as his 4 followers.
If you are in $AMZN here, this is your company. Saturated. Over-owned. These peeps are your ‘ride-or-die’ comrades as you head into the unknown.
Let that sink in for a minute.
