Who buys and sells stock based on something they read on twitter?

Talk about dumb money.

I wish I know ahead of time this was going to happen and I would have put in some orders to buy low.

Do it again!

Ask Obama and Axelrod, they fake tweet all the time, but at least it's to fake accounts.

Obama drew a line in the sand with Syria. Syria just wiped it out and Michele is in the Lincoln bedroom trying to stop his tantrum.

These are automated computer programs whom read headlines (and twitter/social media) and buy/sell based on certain key words.

Bomb, white house, explosion, president. Im sure a lot of these are key words they pick up on. It is why you saw so much instant selling as these werent people doing the transactions.

Assclowns like Obama encourage this infantile behavior; it's the last refuge of traitors. He probably tweeted the assclown Dixie Chick and encouraged more drug use to disregard the five and a half tons of yellowcake in Iraq. They're all idiots!
Your handle should be "Bringmeabrain-cell"

Never under estimate the gullibility and stupidity of a teabagger.
