SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) – Stronger revenue from Twitter sent the company’s stock up 21 percent in early trading Wednesday.

The San Francisco-based social-networking company reported a quarterly loss late Tuesday but its revenue more than doubled over the year, thanks to new advertising tools and a surge in traffic from soccer fans following the World Cup.

Twitter’s stock -ticker TWTR – surged $8 to more than $46 per share early Wednesday.
