TradeAudit Mobile App

TradeAudit is a mobile app for iOS/Android targeting anyone using Twitter for stock trading ideas or investment recommendations. This financial side of Twitter is colloquially referred to as “fintwit”, ie: Financial Twitter, and is popular with a range of people from individuals managing their own money to hustlers trying to get rich quickly.

Twitter supports a feature called “cashtags” where users can represent stock ticker symbols within Tweets using a dollar sign, for example $spy represents the SPDR S&P 500 ETF. The TradeAudit mobile app allows Tweets made about stocks (with or without cashtags) to be recorded, tracked via live exchange prices, and aggregated to create historical performance records for Twitter accounts.

See https://tradeaudit.app for more

While the app is a closed-source, it is a meaningful source for documentation around the technology, design, and business environment TradeAudit will operate in. All posts about TradeAudit on this blog will include the tradeaudit tag.
