Shooting higher or falling hard is one of the things that will put a stock with previously lackluster intensity scores near the top of the most active stocks on Twitter. Tesla Motors (TSLA) shot higher to gain the list while Research in Motion (BBRY) dropped by nearly a third in a day to get its status.
The other thing that helps stocks stay active on Twitter is is a good story or a cult following. Gold (GLD), Silver (SLV), and Gold Stocks (GDX), Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG), Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), and Netflix (NFLX) fall into this category.
Below are charts of the intensity scores for the most active stocks on Twitter for the week and month ending 7/2/13.
