Hot Tips, Twitter and Insider Trading

As more people learn daily, Twitter is a way to get a message out to the entire world. The twist, of course, is that your message will only be seen by people who have chosen to follow your updates.

I am interested in how Twitter may intersect with the insider trading laws, and have offered up some hypotheticals in this post on my Enforcement Action blog over at Compliance Week.  Please weigh in with your thoughts!
