I wish to create a website that combines old fashioned forum discussions with the look of a twitter like data feed. This will be a Finance platform where users can interact and follow shares/companies and users that they have an interest in following. For inspiration please see:

What I require:
Ability to register/Log in/forgotten password functionality
Once registered - user has own user page - similar to Linkedin
unregistered users can still browse website content and users feeds
Users can post research/comments/external links - these posts will be tagged to a specific company, a specific sector and specific industry
Users have ability to create new company pages - on approval of admin, once approved all users can post to this company feed
Users can follow specific company feeds and other users - updates will be shown to them in a similar way to twitter/Linkedin
Users have a mini feed in their main feed called my portfolio - here is where companies they follow will be shown and where they can see updates on those feeds.
Homepage providing insight on the platform : like [url removed, login to view]
Design needs to be clean, social and professional - similar to Linkedin.
Further information will be provided to shortlisted freelancers.
