On StockTwits, we love sentiment and message volume. They change quickly and rapidly with big announcements or news. In today’s morning preview we’re taking a look at 3 stocks that have seen huge changes in social sentiment. Here they are:

1.) Blackberry ($BBRY) report earnings this morning and like we expected message volume is spiking. Over the last 24 hours message volume is up 24% and approaching 4,000 messages shared on a 7-day rolling basis. Blackberry climbed as much as 7% after they reported earnings and here’s why:
