eToro, a trading and investing platform, announced on Thursday that it has partnered with Elon Musk’s Twitter to provide users with real-time prices for cryptocurrencies, stocks, and other assets.
The trading data will be available via Twitter’s Cashtags feature, which was introduced in 2012 and allows users to interact with content centred on an asset by placing a dollar sign in front of the ticker.
Previously, Twitter users could view real-time trading data from markets-charting platform TradingView, but only on certain assets such as the S&P 500 index and shares of specific companies such as Tesla.
They can now navigate to eToro’s platform to learn more about the asset, with the option to invest.
Since acquiring Twitter for $44 billion in late October, Musk has implemented a number of changes to the microblogging website, including the implementation of a subscription-based plan for verified users and mass layoffs.
