Now on Twitter: Your Friend, the SEC

By Melissa Lafsky | August 11, 2008 1:32 pm

Twitter LogoTwitter is quickly inserting itself into the political mainstream, helping to extract American travelers from sticky situations abroad and even giving members of Congress a way to connect with their constituents. Now, Footnoted blogger Michelle Leder has discovered that the Securities and Exchange Commission has its very own Twitter feed. Under the moniker SEC_Investor_Ed, the SEC has been posting updates since late July of this year.

As Leder notes, the SEC’s Tweets are basically a condensed selection of the (not really all that exciting) press releases available on the organization’s Web site, and it was started the day before the SEC voted unanimously to provide new guidelines for public companies’ Web pages. Still, someone must be interested: So far, 275 followers have subscribed to the feed.

  62. To commercialize in footings of quality rather than monetary value, and in order to specialize consequently, you want to play along the official format of the 4 Ps marketing plan. That is, Price, Product, Place and Promotion obviously you recognize the strategic properties of the product, and the cost, but for place you should think about the type of people who are willing to pay over 4x price of competing production whereas the second-class option may be sold where accent is on cost, your ware will be suited to places/distributors where the customers will be willing to pay for quality.
