Twitter and Instagram are two social media sites that have taken the world by storm. But they have their own language that many users, especially new ones, have a hard time understanding. Reuters

Bloomberg ranked U.S. companies based on the number of Twitter postings that contained a company "cash tag" (the $ followed by the company's stock ticker in uppercase letters) using data compiled by Bloomberg Social Velocity Alerts.

Figures for market cap were as of 8/31/13.
