Twitter has added a new feature that allows users to search for the prices of Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH) by typing their names or tickers into the search tab.
When users tweet the symbol of a major stock, exchange-traded fund, or cryptocurrency with “$” in front of it, a clickable link will appear that takes them to search results including pricing graphs for those symbols.
Users can also search for ticker symbols and view the price graphs. The new feature was announced by the Twitter Business account on December 21 and was later retweeted by Twitter CEO Elon Musk, who noted that it was “one of many product improvements coming to financial Twitter.”
Currently, BTC and ETH are the only two cryptocurrencies with price charts, but Twitter Business plans to expand its coverage of symbols and improve the user experience in the coming weeks.
