Today, we are super excited to announce a new feature that we think our community will love.
The StockTwits Social Sentiment Indicator is a simple toggle on the StockTwits message box that allows our members to communicate their view (Bullish or Bearish) on any specific asset or the market as a whole.
If you wish to add sentiment to a message, click Bull or Bear and your view is embedded in the message and viewable on the stream. If your message is cashtagged with $TICKER then your sentiment is associated with that ticker.
Here’s how StockTwits messages will look in the stream with sentiment attached:
The StockTwits Sentiment Indicator will allow our members to clearly communicate their view and others who read the message to know whether that message is from someone who is bullish or bearish.
It will also allow those viewing streams to eyeball the preponderance of bulls to bears.
Stay tuned on that front as we will have more features coming around member generated sentiment signals. :)
