Twitter’s 20% Stock Sale Restriction Causes Friction In The Ranks

Twitter is still a private company, and despite the rush of adrenalin that LinkedIn’s IPO and Facebook’s filing have given investors interested in social, it’s not likely to change that fact any time soon. Twitter has in place a limit on the amount of stock its employees and other shareholders may sell, limiting it to 20 percent of their shares. And not everyone is happy about this policy.

Have We Connected?

Twittercism is only a few months old but has already built a strong number of subscribers and regular visitors, with folks taking advantage of the different ways to read the content of this blog, via RSS reader, email, the Kindle, and of course the website itself.

A lot of my readers have come to this website thanks to my presence on Twitter, where through the @Sheamus account I share a lot of great content from my travels around the internet.

Others have arrived at Twittercism from social media bookmarking portals, such as Digg, Reddit and Stumbleupon, thanks to the kindness of those who have been generous enough to submit my articles to these sites.

And I’ve been fortunate enough to be mentioned and quoted on many great sites such as Mashable, ReadWriteWeb, ZDNet and Techmeme.

This is all fantastic, but because of the different paths that lead everybody to this site, there’s an element of disparity about these connections. This is the time to rectify that!

“I’d like to see the new followers’ profile information and follower / following numbers included in the email. Getting a simple heads-up like that would help with the filtering process without the need to visit the site and check out the profile page for every new follower.”

Well Darren, it appears you got your wish – or somebody important was watching – as Twitter today sneaked in very welcome changes to the content of these emails.
