10:30 EDTFB, TWTRTwitter climbs after analyst puts $75 target on shares
Shares of Twitter (TWTR) are jumping after research firm Stifel Nicolaus initiated coverage of the stock with a Buy rating. WHAT'S NEW: Twitter's ad revenue will grow 600% over the next four years, Stifel analyst Jordan Rohan predicted in a note to investors earlier today. Noting that the website currently has 232 million users versus Facebook's (FB) 1.2 billion users, Rohan believes that the number of users on Twitter will grow for years. Additionally, over time, Twitter's average revenue per user will be higher than that of Facebook, the analyst added. Compared with Facebook, Twitter has much fewer available shares, which should enable Twitter's valuation to remain higher than its social media rival, the analyst stated. He has a $75 price target on Twitter. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Twitter is nearing a deal with startup Stripe that would help enable Twitter to accept credit card payments from users, Re/code reported. Twitter will allow users to buy products directly through the social network, soon, the tech site added. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Twitter rallied $3.30, or 5.4%, to $63.90.

17:54 EDTFBFacebook to expand use of 'Safety Check' feature in wake of Paris attacks
Facebook announced it will be expanding its use of "Safety Check," a feature allowing users of the social network who live in endangered areas of the world to let friends and family know they are safe. Traditionally limited to natural disasters, the policy change has been made in the wake of the terrorist attacks on Paris, France, during which the company turned on Safety Check for affected users. The move spurred both praise for quick action and criticism for not using the feature during other serious events such as Thursday's tragedy in Beirut, prompting Facebook to reconsider its use of the service. "Each time we have launched the tool, we've improved it... We are learning to make the tool and policies behind it better as we go -- and because Safety Check is a relatively new feature for us, we're still understanding how it can best be used... We talked with our employees on the ground, who felt that there was still a need that we could fill. So we made the decision to try something we've never done before: activating Safety Check for something other than a natural disaster... We want this tool to be available whenever and wherever it can help," explained the company.
