No, you won't have to ditch Google as a verb -- at least not yet anyway. But you should know that if you want to buy or sell stock in the company, it has officially changed its name. Starting today, the tech company will begin trading as Alphabet on Nasdaq. The company announced in August it would create a new company that oversees its Internet business and growing number of other ventures. Traders won't have to learn a new symbol for the company; the ticker names will remain "GOOG" and "GOOGL." IN THE NEWS: TWITTER AND POLITICS TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- They want to be the nation's top leader. But when it comes to Twitter, who are the presidential candidates following? Depends on the candidate. For example, Jeb Bush follows Donald Trump on Twitter -- but Trump doesn't follow Bush back. Many on Ted Cruz's "following" list are from the tea party -- but he also follows President Barack Obama. Marco Rubio seems to follow a lot of different people, Democrats as well as fellow Republicans -- as well as people who offer advice on various things including body-piercing, playing craps and getting out of debt.
