StockTwits Public Beta Goes Live

The team at StockTwits is proud to announce that the public beta release of our new website is now available for everyone to try. We worked hard on the new site for over a year, completely rebuilding it in React for incredibly fast speeds, better usability, and an improved mobile web experience.

To try out the public beta, click here: https://new.stocktwits.com

Here’s a quick overview of some big new features:

News, Earnings, and Events

In finance, the speed of information is crucial. That’s why we built our own News and Events engine, called Newswire, from scratch. It scours the web and social media to bring breaking news, earnings, and announcements right to the ticker pages the moment they break. We are also announcing a partnership with Benzinga and Estimize to include some of the best finance writing and earnings data right into our site.

Newswire compiles a short summary of each article, so you can get up to speed and back to trading without leaving the stream. Newswire is available today on Web and iOS, and coming to Android in November.

Home Dashboard

We are also launching a new Dashboard to show you the things that matter most — and matter now. Your Dashboard will be the best place to start your trading day with your watchlist, trending tickers, relevant news, a heatmap, and more.

We plan to add more information, personalization, and other modules as we continue to build out the site. We are excited to get your feedback and ideas for what you’d like to see on your homepage as we add to it.

Charting

Finally, we are thrilled to announce a partnership with ChartIQ, the leading charting framework, to finally bring full charting to StockTwits. You can mark up charts, add text and emojis, draw doodles, put in technical studies, and much more. Best of all, once you marked up your chart, you can share it with your followers in a single click.

If you are a regular StockTwits user, we would appreciate you using this opportunity to help us make the final release the best it can be. If you notice issues, bugs, or have suggestions for things we can improve, click the “Feedback” tab on the right of the site to let us know what you’re seeing or thinking.

Thanks!
