January 11th conference to facilitate real-time Tweeting and chatting among all attendees, presenters and investors

NEW YORK, Nov. 23, 2010 /PRNewswire/ --  BetterInvesting (NAIC), PR Newswire and MUNCmedia today announced that RetailInvestorConferences.com now has a social media functionality integrated directly into its webcast event presentation platform.

Launched on Nov. 4, 2010, Retail Investor Conferences provides an interactive forum for presenting public companies to meet directly with individual investors using a graphically-enhanced online platform. The next conference will be held January 11th and will continue the first week of every month throughout 2011.

Investors are invited to register on the November 4th event page to be pre-registered for all 2011 events.

"Individual investors have a huge and insatiable appetite to share their very best ideas via Social Media," said Howard Lindzon, Co-Founder and CEO of StockTwits.com, the web's Social Media built information service for investments. "StockTwits channels over 100,000 users, many who would certainly enjoy hearing, and Tweeting about, a CEO's presentation in real-time."

"Last month's inaugural event generated a healthy amount of social media activity pre- and post-event," said Bradley H. Smith, CMO at MUNCmedia, "so it was logical that we enable Tweeting from within the actual conference itself. Individual investors are extremely active with social media. This is clearly demonstrated on sites like StockTwits," continued Smith. "Main Street investors like to share what they know, openly ask questions and boast about their great buys."
