Is it Safe?

The Better Stock Twits script is 100% safe to use. It collects no data from you nor does it inject any malicious code. All the script does is add URL links under the stock ticker in stocktwits.

Why did you make it?

Whenever I am glutton for punishment, I like to browse stock twits and see what people are saying about certain stocks. I also like discovering some stocks that I never heard of. It got irritating when I would stumble across a new stock and would have to manually search for its financial information instead of just clicking and viewing it’s information. Of course, never trust anybody when it comes to stock, always do your own Due Diligence.
