Twitter Posting Issue Resolved

Dear Community,

We have just fixed a major issue many of you reported where messages with links were not posting to Twitter. We know how important it is for you to share your StockTwits posts to your Twitter followers, and wanted to explain what happened.

Twitter blocked short links from StockTwits

A few days ago, Twitter started dropping messages from our platform when they saw our link shortener (stks.co) or links coming from our site or apps. They did this in response to complaints about spammers sending messages through our platform.

How did we fix the issue?

We have fixed this by changing the way we shorten and send links to Twitter, and will be moving away from shortened links entirely to a better solution soon.

The fix went around noon EST on web, our mobile apps and API. Please let us know if you are still seeing issues, but note that it can still take a few minutes for messages to appear on Twitter when shared there.

We apologize for any inconvenience and are working with Twitter closely to make sure this never happens again.

Best,

Dave

Director, Product
