Like many companies these days, the StockTwits team lives on Slack. It’s the lifeblood of our organization. Since we all love the markets, we built an integration for Slack to be able to quickly get stock quotes, news, and see what the StockTwits community is saying straight from Slack. Today, we wanted to share it with everyone!
You can add StockTwits to your Slack organization simply by clicking the button below.
Here’s how to use it.
Type in /stocktwits and a symbol in any Slack channel and we will give you a real time quote, some basic price and fundamental data, a link to that company stream on StockTwits, along with a great gif from giphy that syncs up with how the stock is trading for the day.
For example here’s what happened when we typed “/stocktwits twtr” yesterday (or most days this week).
It’s a really easy, fun way to check in on your favorite stocks, and with one click see what the StockTwits community is saying about it. This command will work on any channel you use once you install the integration.
As part of this integration we will also push you timely news alerts for REALLY important market events. An example of one is below:
When you set up your StockTwits slack integration, choose a channel where you wish to get news alerts.We promise not to overload you with news, but if you do not wish to receive any alerts, simply don’t choose a channel.
We hope you enjoy this Slackbot and please let us know if you have any issues or any feedback on how we can make it better. Once again you can install with one click with the button below.
