twitter.symbols

Financial ticker symbols (cashtags) identify stocks in Tweets. For example, Google stock is $GOOG and Apple stock is $AAPL.

The twitter.symbols target makes it easy to filter for these.

See also: twitter.retweet.symbols.

Examples

  1. Filter for Tweets that mention Google or Apple stock:

    twitter.symbols in "GOOG, AAPL"

    Notice that we omit the $ symbol.

  2. Filter for Tweets that mention Microsoft and Intel stock:

    twitter.symbols contains "MSFT"
    and twitter.symbols contains "INTC"

    Again, notice that we omit the $ symbol.
