Rube Investors Think ‘TWTRQ’ is Twitter

TWTRQTwitter filed to go public yesterday, choosing the stock ticker TWTR. Twitter shares are expected to start trading before Thanksgiving this year.

But it looks like some investors are a bit confused. A company called Tweeter Home Entertainment, which has the stock ticker TWTRQ, was up as much as 1,500% today, but fluctuated wildly. It ended the day up more than 684%.
The stock was halted for a while after several outlets reported the news.

    I remember Tweeter; they were a chain of stores that went under around 2008, right before Twitter became a big thing.  I didn’t know they were still around in any capacity.
