I am looking for a similar style and design of stocktwits.com for my site. I have a few key ideas that would make my site better than theirs and would like a few quotes on the costs involved with performing such work. A base site similar to stocktwits will suffice for the initial launch, however there's potential for larger work (to implement my ideas) once successful testing has been conducted on the initial launch. Developer must have a strong understanding of the inner workings of Twitter and Stocktwits. Please let me know if you have any questions.
The site should have same purpose and functionality as stocktwits wich is a financial communications platform for the financial and investing community. StockTwits created the $TICKER tag to enable and organize twitter "streams" of information around stocks and markets across the web and social media. These streams provide new forms of insight, ideas and information that are used by investors, analysts, media and others as they research stocks and manage their investments.
