Twitter Launches Price Graph Support for Shiba Inu

Posted by in category: cryptocurrencies

Twitter has added cashtag support for Shiba Inu. The recently launched initiative will allow SHIB, enthusiasts to keep track of these crypto assets’ prices along with BTC, ETH, and Doge. To use the service, users are required to search for the symbol of any of the supported digital currencies with the dollar sign ($) in front of it. For instance, Twitter users can check the price of Shiba Inu by typing $SHIB in the search bar. The search result will include the pricing graphs of Shiba Inu alongside a clickable link that will take the user directly to Robinhood. Crypto enthusiasts can quickly create an account on Robinhood to purchase digital currency.

To me a Twitter crypto currency used for Twitter transactions makes sense, as the, volume of transactions would add value to those who buy it early as an investment. Twitter could also prevent Some BankFraud-Fried incidents.
