Bullish mentions of Amazon's stock on Twitter increased in the past week even after Wal-Mart agreed to acquire Jet.com to take on the e-commerce giant, showing enthusiasm for the darling stock is as strong as ever.

Social Market Analytics, which scans posts on social networks to form predictive trading signals, reveals Amazon had the biggest jump in bullish mentions among major U.S. stocks in the last week.

When news of a potential Wal-Mart/Jet.com deal was first reported last Wednesday, Amazon stock did dip slightly. However, the company's shares soon rebounded to near all-time highs as investors quickly shrugged at the potential competitive threat.

Amazon shares are up 14 percent year to date as of Tuesday's close.
