Twitter announces change to algorithm in effort to tackle 'trolls'

Twitter's Del Harvey and David Gasca said in a blog post: "In March, we introduced our new approach to improve the health of the public conversation on Twitter. One important issue we've been working to address is what some might refer to as 'trolls.' Some troll-like behavior is fun, good and humorous. What we're talking about today are troll-like behaviors that distort and detract from the public conversation on Twitter, particularly in communal areas like conversations and search. Some of these accounts and Tweets violate our policies, and, in those cases, we take action on them. Others don't but are behaving in ways that distort the conversation. To put this in context, less than 1% of accounts make up the majority of accounts reported for abuse, but a lot of what's reported does not violate our rules. While still a small overall number, these accounts have a disproportionately large - and negative - impact on people's experience on Twitter. The challenge for us has been: how can we proactively address these disruptive behaviors that do not violate our policies but negatively impact the health of the conversation?" They continued: "Today, we use policies, human review processes, and machine learning to help us determine how Tweets are organized and presented in communal places like conversations and search. Now, we're tackling issues of behaviors that distort and detract from the public conversation in those areas by integrating new behavioral signals into how Tweets are presented. By using new tools to address this conduct from a behavioral perspective, we're able to improve the health of the conversation, and everyone's experience on Twitter, without waiting for people who use Twitter to report potential issues to us... In our early testing in markets around the world, we've already seen this new approach have a positive impact, resulting in a 4% drop in abuse reports from search and 8% fewer abuse reports from conversations. That means fewer people are seeing Tweets that disrupt their experience on Twitter. Our work is far from done. This is only one part of our work to improve the health of the conversation and to make everyone's Twitter experience better." Reference Link

Snap price target lowered to $14 from $17 at Jefferies
Snap last night posted the lowest top line growth it has seen as a public company and user metrics "show more trouble ahead," Jefferies analyst Brent Thill tells investors in a post-earnings research note titled "Ongoing Growing Pains." The analyst continues to recommend Facebook (FB) in Social and is more positive on Twitter (TWTR) than Snap during the latter's redesign. He lowered his price target for Snap to $14 and keeps a Hold rating on the shares.

Twitter price target raised to $32 from $22 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley raised his price target for Twitter to $32 while keeping a Hold rating on the shares. The analyst feels "increasingly positive" on Twitter due to "strong" product and business momentum across user engagement and monetization. However, he remains on the sidelines given the stock's "premium valuation on relatively slower growth."

Twitter's new partnerships highlight 'growing relevance,' says Baird
Disney's (DIS) and Viacom's (VIAB) announced live content/streaming partnerships with Twitter (TWTR) highlight Twitter's "growing relevance as a distribution platform," Baird analyst Colin Sebastian tells investors in a research note. He believes the partnerships should provide tailwinds for Twitter's video advertising business. Video accounts for greater than 50% of Twitter ad revenue and is its fastest growing ad format, Sebastian points out. The analyst says Disney and Viacom represent two of the company's biggest partnership wins to-date. He keeps a Neutral rating on Twitter with a $30 price target. The stock closed the trading day up 4.5% to $30.31.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Twitter (TWTR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS, to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie, and to Neutral from Underweight at Atlantic Equities. 2. Boeing (BA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Societe Generale. 3. Chipotle (CMG) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG, to Buy from Hold at Canaccord, to Neutral from Sell at Guggenheim, and to Market Perform from Underperform at Cowen. 4. Wex (WEX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Peter Christiansen saying despite rallying 28% in the past six months, the stock should "grind further on continued organic momentum, though importantly on favorable margin dynamics." 5. Anthem (ANTM) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Gary Taylor saying he continues to be comfortable with the near-term trajectory of medical cost trends for the health insurance industry and maintains a long-term preference to own payors over providers.
