The San Francisco-based company will replace Monsanto Co. in the index. Monsanto, an agricultural products company, is leaving the S&P 500 because it is being acquired by Germany's Bayer AG.
  
S&P Dow Jones Indices says the change will become effective prior to the open of trading on Thursday.
  
Netflix will replace Monsanto on the S&P 100, a subset of the S&P 500 for some of the largest companies.
  
The announcement of the changes came after the close of regular trading hours. Twitter's stock rose 3.5 percent in after-hours trading.
