We Teamed Up with Robinhood to Bring True Social Trading to the StockTwits Community
Today we’re excited to announce that we teamed up with Robinhood to bring brokerage functionality to the StockTwits iOS 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
- Swipe to trade for free with Robinhood right from your StockTwits Watchlist and Trending List
- Share your Robinhood trades with the StockTwits community
Here’s how it works.
Connecting 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 Robinhood, or else you will not be able to connect.
Viewing your Robinhood Holdings on your StockTwits Watchlist
Once you are connected, you can easily see the stocks on your StockTwits watchlist that you hold in your Robinhood account. 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.
Trading on Robinhood straight from StockTwits
Once you connect, it’s easy to trade directly from StockTwits. Simply swipe any stock on your watch list and tap Buy or Sell. After you tap you will be brought into the Robinhood app to execute your trade. Once you are done you will be brought back to the StockTwits app.
Sharing Your 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. If you tap that notification,you will be prompted to share your verified trade with the community. Be sure to tell everyone why you made it!
We are very excited for this feature and can’t wait to track the first viral trades.
