Twitter has implemented a new cryptocurrency tool that allows users to check Bitcoin and Ethereum price charts by just putting their names or tickers into the search bar. The new feature is an enhancement to “$Cashtags” and was revealed on December 21 by the company’s business account.
Twitter adds integrated Bitcoin and Ethereum price charts
People will be able to see a clickable link that takes them to search results that now include pricing graphs for major stocks, exchange-traded funds, and cryptocurrencies whenever they tweet the symbol of a major stock, exchange-traded fund, or cryptocurrency with $ in front of it, according to the account.
It was also mentioned that merely searching for the ticker symbol of a stock or cryptocurrency will bring up the price graph. Shortly after, on December 22, Elon Musk retweeted the new feature’s release, noting that it is “one of many product improvements coming to financial Twitter.”

At the time of writing, it appears that BTC and ETH are the only two cryptocurrencies having price charts. Other popular cryptocurrencies, including Musk’s favorite coin, DOGE, were not included. Twitter Business, on the other hand, stated that it aims to increase its symbol coverage and improve user experience “in the coming weeks.”
A variety of Bitcoin variants, including “$Bitcoin,” “Bitcoin price,” and “BTC price,” bring up the price chart, as do comparable searches for Ethereum. On December 21, tech blogger Jane Mastodon Wong informed her 158,700 followers that the charts are derived from the trading research tool TradingView.
The price charts also feature a “View on Robinhood” link in the lower left-hand corner, implying that the retail trading platform has collaborated with Twitter for this integration. Users are then sent to Robinhood’s ETH price chart, which includes a link to “Sign Up to Buy Ethereum” further down. The same links are available for Bitcoin.
However, no information on the partnership between the social media company and Robinhood has been released. The price chart integration may drive additional visitors to Robinhood since #Bitcoin is tweeted around 120,000 times each day. #Ethereum, on the other hand, is trading around the 25,000 mark.
