StockTwits, a social platform for the investing community, announced late last week that it has integrated social charting service, Chart.ly, onto its platform. StockTwits purchased Chart.ly back in 2009, but this is the first integration of its capabilities.

The integration enables users to easily upload charts and record screenshots by using the Include Media button.

It also makes it easy for members to search, view, and share the charts and videos, and even has the capability to filter for charts and screencasts on the StockTwits stream.

STStream.jpg

Upon clicking the chart or video, users can see a larger view where they can zoom in and comment.

Because all Chart.ly functionality has been ported to StockTwits, the Chart.ly site now redirects to StockTwits.
