Carl Icahn's 45 tweets have garnered a good amount of attention, but his recent chattering about Apple has not seen much action.

Specifically, the activist investor's demands last week that Apple do a massive share buyback moved the stock little and generated far less trading than his August tweet revealing his "large position" in the company.

Andrew Wilkinson, chief economic strategist at Miller Tabak, analyzed both Icahn tweets (which is news enough in itself that a top investment official at a big New York house is analyzing tweets).
