Twitter Boosts Search Results For Cashtags

Posted by

Twitter is upgrading the user experience for cashtags, showing pricing charts when users click the sign of a major stock, ETF, or cryptocurrency.

Adding a dollar sign in front of a stock or currency sign, like $AAPL, develops a clickable cashtag.

Formerly, clicking a cashtag would take you to a standard set of search engine result featuring popular tweets.

If you wanted to find out the current value of the stock or currency, you needed to check out another website to get the details.

Now, you can get the details you’re trying to find right away with upgraded search results page for cashtags.

In addition to clicking on cashtags, you can trigger the brand-new search experience by looking for the symbols with or without the dollar sign.

Twitter says it’s presenting this feature with the major signs first, and will broaden its coverage of symbols in the coming weeks.
