Twitter is a unique social media platform. Unlike Facebook, the world’s most popular social media network, Twitter is more community-oriented than the former platform, exposing people to more once-unknown users’ tweets than most other digital networking sites – not just Facebook.
Countless times each and every day, Twitter users publish numerous tweets in short periods of time. In World Wide Web-friendly jargon, such a phenomenon is known as a “tweetstorm.”
While most people that use Twitter aren’t well-known or appeal to wide audiences – nor do they often publish such aforementioned tweetstorms – some Twitter users fit both categories. Shervin Pishevar is a widely-known investor, at least by standards of the investment world, who published a 50-tweet tweetstorm back in February.
Happy Independence Day. America is a young and great nation. Our potential is still unborn. Patriots will endeavor to love their nation through the good and bad and draw us towards the better angels of our nature.

Through the tweetstorm has long past its peak of popularity, the contents of Mr. Pishevar’s tens-of-tweets, 280-character rampage is nothing short of being intriguing, well thought-out, and full of predictions that have ultimately turned out to be true.
Here are some of the most notable, accurate, entertaining, and thought-provoking tweets belonging to Shervin Pishevar’s tweetstorm. Go check it out yourself if you’d like to see more – it’s unarguably worth a click.
Shervin Pishevar’s first tweet wasn’t entirely accurate…
… but it was pretty close – at least in principle. According to the first tweet, sent at 8:19 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on February 5, 2018, “I expect 6000 point drop in aggregate in months ahead.” As Shervin Pishevar would indicate in following tweets, that 6,000 point drop is in terms of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, a highly-regarded, industry-standard index used to gauge the overall performance of both the world of corporate finance and the United States economy, among other solid, tried-and-true uses.
In 2018, the Dow Jones dropped, from its highest yearly value to its lowest, roughly 2,600 points. Although only half of his 6,000-point prediction, the year still has six months left.
Bonds might not be as promising as some thing
The all-star venture capitalist tweeted that the “Bond market is not as deep a well [as] we think” soon after his first tweet. That tweet – fifth in the series – has so far proven to be true.
