TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. could be sliding into your DMs.

The brokerage is allowing customers to buy and sell stocks and exchange-traded funds using direct messages on Twitter Inc.’s platform, months after creating a similar feature for Facebook Inc.’s Messenger services, according to a company statement Thursday. Even non-TD Ameritrade customers can message the Twitter chat bot to receive market updates on stock prices and monitor sentiment on social media.
