Twitter is set to soar more than 20% in 2021 as the online advertising market rebounds from its sharp decline during the coronavirus pandemic, according to JPMorgan.

The investment firm upgraded the social media stock to overweight from neutral and hiked its price target, saying Twitter was poised for a strong 2021 and making it one of JPMorgan's top picks.
