Robin Hood’s stock rises

- By Josh Payne

A SOCIETY devoted to the legend of Robin Hood enjoyed a surge in interest after being confused with a stock-trading platform.

TheWorldWi­de Robin Hood Society now has almost 40,000 followers after some Twitter users mistook it for the Robinhood app.

The US trading platform received complaints for restrictin­g trading in electronic­s company GameStop. Its Nottingham-based namesake tweeted: “Lovely to have all these new followers. Can we just check that you know you’re following The World Wide Robin Hood Society and not the Robinhood App. If so... a big welcome from Sherwood.”
