Social media chatter on Wall Street Thursday ran the gamut from increasing unemployment claims to Stephen Curry's latest Under Armour (UA) sneakers.
Initial claims benefits rose by 13,000 to 277,000 in just one week, in a dismal sign of cooling U.S. employment, the St. Lous Federal Reserve Bank tweeted
The hike in employment claims goes to support Fed Chair Janet Yellen's decision Wednesday to keep interest rates steady at near-zero levels, as the central bank's dual mandate includes keeping unemployment rates low, in addition to maintaining price stability.
Meanwhile, Fight for the Future, a nonprofit advocacy group for Internet freedom, celebrated a federal appeals court decision Tuesday to back so-called net-neutrality rules that ensure Web content is regulated as a utlity rather than a luxury.
TheStreet's Brian Sozzi also jumped on Twitter Thursday to show off Stephen Curry's latest Under Armour sneakers, as part of an ongoing news project.
