Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has purchased a 4 percent stake in Twitter, making him one of the company's biggest shareholders.




Following the news, Twitter Inc. shares rose 4.9 percent, which is especially good news for the company (and Ballmer) given they've declined 40 percent since April.


Ballmer stated on his new Twitter account that the company is "leaner, more focused" and that he's "glad" for his investment.
