• Twitter has had several ties to the crypto industry over the past few years, adding a tipping feature in September 2021 while the company was under the management of Jack Dorsey.
• Since then the company has been taken over by Elon Musk, who spearheaded plans to invest $1.5 billion of electric-car maker Tesla’s balance sheet into bitcoin, most of which has now been sold.

Twitter has recently taken a big step into the world of cryptocurrency by integrating cryptocurrency prices into search results using a plug-in from TradingView, a popular charting platform. This means that anyone can simply type in a crypto or stock ticker into the search bar and be presented with the current value and a price chart of the asset. Twitter has included a link to trading app Robinhood, as well.

The social media giant has had a long and storied history with cryptocurrency. Back in September 2021, while the company was under the management of Jack Dorsey, they added a tipping feature. Since then, Twitter has been taken over by Elon Musk, the famous entrepreneur behind Tesla. Musk spearheaded plans to invest $1.5 billion of Tesla’s balance sheet into bitcoin, most of which has since been sold.

In the coming weeks, Twitter plans to refine the user experience and expand the coverage of symbols. This move is likely to help streamline the process of tracking cryptocurrency prices and increase the visibility of the crypto industry. Many believe that this could be another step towards mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies, as Twitter has become a major platform for influencers and traders alike. With more and more companies entering the cryptocurrency space, it will be interesting to see how the industry will develop over time.
