Twitter has quietly expanded its new crypto feature, which lets users search for the price of individual tokens, by adding at least 30 more tokens.
The new additions are part of the social media giant’s $Cashtags feature, which was announced by the Twitter Business account on Dec. 21. Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH) were the first to be part of the new feature.
Tweeting or searching for a crypto symbol with a dollar sign ($) is now a link to those symbols’ pricing charts.
Cointelegraph found 30 of the top 50 tokens by market capitalization, including Tether (USDT), XRP (XRP), Binance USD (BUSD), Cardano (ADA), Solana (SOL), Polygon (MATIC), Litecoin (LTC) , Day. (DAI), Avalanche (AVAX), Uniswap (UNI), Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB).
Dogecoin’s Twitter community was delighted with the addition, given that new Twitter CEO Elon Musk has offered words of support for the cryptocurrency on numerous occasions.

However, at the time of writing there were some notable omissions such as BNB (BNB), USD Coin (USDC), OKB, Lido Staked Ether (stETH), Polkadot (DOT) and Tron (TRX).
This happened while the crypto tokens are among the top 20 cryptocurrencies by market cap.
Other tokens added are Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Stellar (XLM), Internet Computer (ICP), Decentraland (MANA), and The Sandbox (SAND).

It’s unclear how the tokens will eventually be added, but the Twitter Business account is the original account statement said more cryptocurrencies will continue to be added.
The price index is understood to pull its data from TradingView, but also includes a link to view the cryptocurrency on the Robinhood online trading platform.
However, no partnership agreement between the two has been officially announced.
Since taking the helm at Twitter, Musk has shared hints about what his vision for “Twitter 2.0” could look like, including the possible integration of cryptocurrency-based payments on Twitter.
