Twitter Improves Search Results Page For Cashtags

Posted by

Twitter is updating the user experience for cashtags, showing rates graphs when users click on the symbol of a significant stock, ETF, or cryptocurrency.

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

Formerly, clicking a cashtag would take you to a basic set of search results page featuring popular tweets.

If you wished to find out the current worth of the stock or currency, you needed to visit another website to get the details.

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

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

Twitter says it’s rolling out this feature with the major symbols initially, and will broaden its protection of signs in the coming weeks.
