Phil Pearlman, who had been executive editor at StockTwits, started work on Monday as interactive editor at Yahoo Finance.

On his website, Pearlman writes:

I’m thrilled to get started and will be focusing much energy on bringing super high quality and expert voices to the site.  Over the coming weeks, I will relay more specific details so stay tuned!

Leaving StockTwits was a very difficult decision as I’ve committed myself to growing the community with every bit of energy and as I have grown to love it.

Pearlman is a partner at Social Leverage LLC and makes early stage investments in web-based companies. He is obsessed with the psychosocial aspects of user experience and online community development.

Pearlman ran a long/short equity hedge fund which focused on behavioral strategies and currently runs a private account. He began his trading career back in the day with a Datek account and an attitude. He has always loved to buy fear and sell euphoria.

Pearlman earned a doctorate in clinical psychology from Argosy University and a BA in English from the University of Maryland.
