Who you gonna call when a fake AP tweet blows up Wall Street?

Why our very own Lev Lesokhin, of course.
If you were on Twitter Tuesday (or watching the market index), you no doubt saw AP’s fake tweet regarding an explosion at the White House that wounded the president, and the market and media frenzy that followed as a result. Not only was it remarkable to see the effect one rogue tweet could have on market stability (it temporarily wiped out $136B from the S&P 500), but the whole episode also underscored how fast paced the world of business has become.
