Twitter Improves Search Engine Result For Cashtags

Posted by

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

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

Previously, clicking a cashtag would take you to a basic set of search engine result including popular tweets.

If you wished to find out the existing value of the stock or currency, you needed to check out another site to get the information.

Now, you can get the information you’re looking for right away with upgraded search results page for cashtags.

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

Twitter states it’s rolling out this feature with the significant symbols first, and will broaden its protection of signs in the coming weeks.
