A Well Tagged StockTwits Message

1.  Add a StockTwits $ Cashtag (Exs: $AMZN, $GOOG, $SPY) to the tickers you are messaging about.

So, if you are messaging about Amazon, then you will tag the message with $AMZN.

2. Add only the Cashtagged Tickers that pertain to the message.

So, if you are messaging about Google, use the $GOOG tag only.

3. In addition to stocks, we also have Futures and Forex streams on StockTwits.
