Fortunately, Twitter has added a new feature that allows you to search for cryptocurrency prices and listed stocks in the midst of all the chaos that has been happening on the platform in recent weeks.
There is no need to type any special characters, all you need to do is type the dollar symbol followed by the appropriate ticker symbol. The current price of cryptocurrency will be displayed by Twitter when you type in the search bar the words “$GOOG” and “$ETH”. The application may work in some cases without the $ symbol, but it is less consistent and doesn’t always return the crypto or stock price as requested, even when it works in some cases without the $ symbol.
The problem is that when it works, users will see a static picture with today’s stock prices displayed next to a chart with no information regarding the X and Y axes. In most cases, it’s a price graph for the stock’s most recent closing price, but it isn’t always clear whether or not it’s a price graph.
According to app researcher Jane Manchun Wong, the logo in the image in the screenshot suggests that Twitter is using TradingView data to provide its users with their updates and data. Whether TradingView or Robinhood will form a commercial partnership with the social media company is unclear at the moment.
The Twitter website did not specify which symbols would be included in the list of stock price search results that have been added to the website as part of the recent updates. There is a promise that in the coming weeks, the user experience will be improved and symbols will be made more compatible with one another.
It is worth noting that, at the time of writing, Zoom ($ZM) and Airbnb ($ABNB) didn’t appear in the Twitter search results for companies like Zoom ($ZM).
The Twitter world is in chaos
There has been a lot of activity on Twitter for the past few months following Musk’s takeover of the company. A policy that prohibited links to social media networks like Facebook, Instagram, and Mastodon from the company’s website as well as handles to those networks was quickly removed from the website. As part of its Blue for Business initiative, the company also provided an additional badge to be able to identify employees and brands of companies.
In the end, 57% of voters voted “Yes.” Musk then tweeted: “I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take over. As for me, I will only be responsible for running the software and servers teams after that.”
