Recently, one man caused an extreme amount of commotion on Twitter. This man was Shervin Pishevar. He founded a company called Sherpa Capital, and he also invests in the early stages of various technology related companies. His tweet storm sparked a lot of conversation due to both the volume and the nature of these tweets.
What happened during Pishevar’s tweet storm?
Mr. Pishevar went on a lengthy rant over Twitter, which ended after a total of 21 hours. For nearly an entire day Shervin Pishevar sent 50 different tweets, many of which contained controversial opinions regarding the current and future states of the economy. In order to make his writings easier for his followers to keep up with, Mr. Pishevar decided to number the tweets. This allowed readers to understand the reasoning and logic behind the warnings and claims that he made through his Twitter account.
What information did Pishevar’s 50 tweets contain?
One of the reasons that Mr. Peshevar’s tweet storm was so powerful was the fact that he had been relatively quiet on the platform for a decent length of time leading up to the memorable 21 hour tweeting spree. Pishevar’s 50 tweets covered a wide array of information and opinions, but one of the biggest talking points had to do with the stock market. Shervin Pishevar warned his followers that he believed the market would tank significantly in the near future. Specifically, he said that the market would experience a fall of somewhere around 6,000 points within the next several months.
While the stock market was a main talking point of his rant, Shervin Pishevar also touched on some other economic issues within his tweets. He spoke about monopolies, the United States, China and his predictions for the popular digital currency called Bitcoin. He believes that Bitcoin is massively overvalued, which will likely result in a significant drop in its price in the near future.
Despite the fact that he quit after these 50 tweets, the conversation is only just beginning. His writings have been discussed on various business blogs, where others have added their opinions to the mix.
