The partnership allows users to connect their two accounts, giving Robinhood users access to StockTwits’ stock-tracking tools, and offering Robinhood’s free brokerage service to StockTwits’ users. Highlights of the integration include:
- See stocks on their StockTwits’ watchlist that they own in their Robinhood account
- Swipe to trade for free with Robinhood without leaving the StockTwits’ watchlist and trending list
- Share Robinhood trades within StockTwits’ community
While the new trading functionality is not currently available on Android, StockTwits’ CEO Howard Lindzon notes that a solution is in progress and will be available soon.
