Differences between Investing vs Trading

Twitter is a social networking platform that allows users to send and read short, 140-character messages called "tweets." Twitter was founded in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams and launched in July of that year. The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity, with more than 100 million active users as of 2011.

Twitter went public on the New York Stock Exchange in November 2013, and its stock has since been volatile. In 2016, Twitter was ranked tenth on the Forbes magazine list of America's most valuable brands. As of 2022, it had more than 320 million monthly active users.

Twitter Inc (TWTR) has seen its share price rise and fall over the years. In Jun 2016, the stock was trading at around $14 per share. However, by 2021, the stock had reached its highest point, trading at over $77 per share. Recently, the stock has been on a bit of a decline and despite this recent decline, Twitter Inc remains one of the most popular social media platforms in the world.

Twitter has a lot of competition, but there are really only two social networks that can truly be considered its biggest rivals: Meta and Snapchat.

Investing in Twitter shares means buying them with the intention of holding onto them for the long term. The goal is to benefit from Twitter's growth as a company. While this can lead to some impressive profits, it also comes with more risk. That's because investors are more exposed to the ups and downs of the stock market.

Trading Twitter shares, on the other hand, means taking a shorter-term approach. Traders look to take advantage of price movements in Twitter shares by buying and selling them over a period of days or weeks. This might be a less risky way to trade, but it also means that traders may miss out on some of the potential profits that come with longer-term investing.
