Tiger Global picked up 500,000 TWTR shares during the fourth quarter of 2013 and as of its most recent regulatory filing still has them. It's apparently a good day for social media, as LinkedIn is also posting strong numbers today. About an hour after market open, the stock was trading up +13.84%. This week, the company reported $643 million in Q4 revenue, up 44% from a year ago. Billionaires George Soros and Ray Dalio have small stakes in LinkedIn, with 42,000 and 2,000 shares, respectively.

David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital initiated a position in the firm during the third quarter of 2014, picking up 15,000 shares.

Billionaire George Soros has been coming and going on the stock in recent years, and as of the third quarter of last year, he holds 25,000 Yelp shares.
