In a new thread, Twitter says it’s rolling out a new feature dubbed “$Cashtags,” which also includes price charts for other assets, such as stocks and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
The addition will grant users access to an asset’s price chart by simply typing their name or ticker into Twitter’s search function. Furthermore, all tweets that include the symbol of a stock, crypto or ETF with a “$” in front of them will include a clickable link that leads to price graphs.
However, in terms of cryptocurrencies, only the charts of the top two leading digital assets are currently available via this method, though Twitter says it plans to expand access in the coming weeks, though no specific assets were named.
“When you Tweet the symbol of a major stock, ETF, or cryptocurrency with a ‘$’ in front of it (like $BTC), people on Twitter see a clickable link that takes them to search results. Starting today, these search results will include the pricing graphs for major symbols.
You can also search for symbols directly, without clicking on a link within a Tweet. Most symbols with and without the $ sign will work in search (QQQ or $QQQ). In the coming weeks, we’ll refine the user experience and expand our coverage of symbols.”
According to Twitter CEO and billionaire Elon Musk, who recently announced he’d step down as the social media platform’s chief executive once a suitable replacement is found, this new addition marks one of many new improvements coming to Twitter.
