StockTwits Android app integrates with Robinhood’s zero commission trading platform

Two months ago we launched a partnership with Robinhood on iOS that has delighted users and made it simple to trade and share in fun and profitable ways.

After an outpouring of demand, today we’re excited to announce that we are launching Robinhood brokerage functionality on the StockTwits Android App. This integration will allow you to connect your StockTwits account to your Robinhood account, enabling you to:

  • See the stocks on your watchlist that you own in your Robinhood account
  • View your position data on Ticker streams
  • Swipe to trade for free with Robinhood right from your StockTwits Watchlist and Trending List
  • Share verified Robinhood trades with the StockTwits community

Here’s how it works.

First, make sure you have the latest version of the StockTwits Android app

Connect your StockTwits Account to your Robinhood Account

When you open up the StockTwits app you will be prompted to connect your Robinhood account. Make sure you have the latest version of the Robinhood Android App (2.0+), or else you will not be able to connect. You can also get to this screen by going into ‘Settings’ and then ‘Brokerage Connections’.

 

View your Robinhood holdings on Watchlist and Ticker streams

Once you are connected, you can see stocks on your StockTwits watchlist that you hold in your Robinhood account, with more detail on the ticker page of that stock.  Any stocks that you hold will have a Robinhood logo with the number of shares next to it. Please note that only you can see the stocks that you hold, it is not part of your public profile.

 

Initiate Robinhood trades straight from Watchlist and Trending

Once you connect, it’s easy to trade directly from your watchlist and trending pages. Simply tap the three dots on the right of any stock and tap Buy (if you own the stock you’ll also get the option of Sell).  After you tap you will be brought into the Robinhood app to execute your trade. Once your trade is completed you will be brought back to the StockTwits app so you can share a Verified Trade.

 

Share Your Verified Trade on StockTwits

The most exciting piece of this integration is the ability to share your Verified Trades on StockTwits. Once you have placed a trade through Robinhood, you will receive a notification about it in your StockTwits app. When you tap that notification, you will be prompted to share your verified trade with the community (note: we never publish how many shares you bought).

We have been working hard to bring this functionality to our Android users, awesome job to @robgray_ for building it 🎉
