Last week we announced the ability to follow ticker symbols on StockTwits. This feature has been a tremendous success and people are starting to really follow stocks and use their Home Streams. It has been great for discovery already.
We figured we’d take that discovery potential a step further and launch the $FOLLOW stream.
The $FOLLOW Stream is a StockTwits stream of follow recommendations of Stocks and People from the community. For example, if you think people should follow @ppearlman just type in “$FOLLOW @ppearlman. He’s a great market psychologist” and it will hit the $FOLLOW Stream. If you think people should follow $GOOG just type “$FOLLOW $GOOG. Android is really starting to gain traction” and it will hit the $FOLLOW Stream.
The best thing about this feature is now you can follow the $FOLLOW stream (how meta!) and get follow recommendations sent to you from the community in your Home Stream.
We ask that you PLEASE DO NOT ABUSE this symbol tag. Here’s a breakdown of what to send to the $FOLLOW stream and what to leave out.
