TheStreet's Katherine Ross discussed breaking news in the stock market on Street Lightning with Jim Cramer. Cramer spoke about Microsoft beating earnings, AT&T beating earnings forecasts, and why he would own Twitter stock.
Microsoft Stock: Buy or Sell?
Microsoft (MSFT) - Get Report shares are falling after beating earnings estimates Wednesday. Microsoft's earnings beat was driven by the demand in the cloud software. Microsoft did have a complaint filed by Slack regarding a feature in Microsoft's Teams software.

Twitter Stock: Buy or Sell?
Twitter (TWTR) - Get Report reported a loss during earnings Thursday as ad revenue has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. Shares of Twitter are up today and the social media company was included in the Tech Midday Movers by Annie Gaus. TheStreet analyzed how to trade Twitter shares before earnings.
