Twitter Stock Trading Stopped After Earnings Leaked

Wall Street briefly halted trading for Twitter stock afternoon after the company’s Q1 earnings were leaked early. The leak appeared to come from Selerity, a data science company which is in the business of finding and reporting company earnings early. Selerity works to automatically identify the URL of a company’s earnings statement before that URL is shared publicly — essentially pulling back the veil on earnings information before the company is ready to do so.
