Twitter Jumps After Steve Ballmer Confirms He Bought 4% Stake

When @Steven_Ballmer tweeted last night about acquiring a 4% stake in TWTR, many thought he was either hacked or the account was bogus. It appears, given Bloomberg headlines that this has been confirmed. A 4% stake makes him a bigger holder than Jack Dorsey who owns 3.2%.


The initial tweet...

Good job

, innovation, Ceo, leaner, more focused. Glad I bought 4% past few months. Like move too

— Steve Ballmer (@Steven_Ballmer)

And Bloomberg appears to confirm at 1132ET:

  • *STEVE BALLMER SAYS HE OWNS 4% STAKE IN TWITTER
  • *STEVE BALLMER COMMENTS IN E-MAIL TO BLOOMBERG NEWS
  • Steve Ballmer confirms in e-mail to Bloomberg News that he owns a 4% stake in Twitter.

The result...

 

 

Don't get too excited though...
