Today a man from Ohio might have just been handed a golden egg, his Twitter handle @alphabet is now the new name of the main corporation behind Google.
It was a surprise move and the reaction from the market place was very positive as Google stock soared up 7% in reaction to the new restructuring.
So what does this mean to you?
As a user of Google services such as Google Search or Google AdWords you really won’t experience any difference. Think of this re-organization as a way to help Google report on, and manage, all of their amazing projects. That’s good news for investors, and thus the reason we saw stocks surge once again.
So, while the guy from Ohio smiles at the irony of his Twitter handle, and perhaps tries to come up with a way to monetize today events, the rest of us will continue to Google just as before.
