How they describe their product/innovation: The StockTwits Blog Network will provide all members of our community with a platform to share longer form financial content, and build their personal financial brand. At first, users will be able to apply for a blog on the network, but we will quickly follow that up with a downloadable blog kit that automatically adds your blog to the network.
StockTwits will also be demoing StockTwits Connect, which provides a set of APIs that enable the developer community to leverage our APIs in forming customizable social experiences on their financial sites.
