[Update: Nov. 18] Stocktwits app & website down or not working issue acknowledged, fix in the works
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on February 17, 2022) follows:
Founded in 2009, Stocktwits is a unique social media platform that helps investors, traders and entrepreneurs share ideas with each other. In 2010, Time magazine included it in the list of 50 best websites.
In 2021, Stocktwits had more than 5 million active users and is now an online trading platform. It also allows users to communicate with each other using something called ‘cashtags’, something similar to hashtag.
But according to recent reports from Stocktwits users, the app and website are not working or down right now. This has angered a lot of users since they are unable to buy or sell their stocks.
A quick look at the micro-blogging site Twitter conveys there are many others affected by the same issue. Below are some reports shared by Stocktwits users who are unable to use the platform.
$Amc #AMC Anyone else Stocktwits down? Just remember when they shut the social media down again, we all know the plan. We hodl!
Stocktwits is down. Will it squeeze today?😀 #AMCNOTLEAVING #amcshortsqueeze #GMESQUEEZE #APESNOTLEAVING #AMCSTOCK #AMC
Something VERY strange is going on. Stocktwits is down. I just posted the HUGE earnings reversal, news for $CIDM AND their NEW trademark launch “Cineverse” and NO cashtag for CIDM exists on Twitter now. Just vanished. Any other symbols gone??
As it turns out, Stocktwits seems to be aware and is currently investigating the issue. However, they did not share any information on when the service will be up and running once again.
Our site and mobile apps are currently down. The team is currently investigating the issue and actively working on a fix. Thanks for your patience.
We hope the developers are able to restore the service as soon as possible since many are unable to trade on the platform.
Rest assured, we will be keeping tabs on the developments on this one and update this space as and when we come across new information so make sure you keep checking PiunikaWeb.
