Twitter slides again; Q4 report set for Feb. 5

|By:, SA News Editor

Twitter's (TWTR -7.3%) roller-coaster ride continues: After rallying back to the $70 range last week, shares are down 13% from Friday's intraday high of $70.43, as enthusiasm about Twiiter's long-term potential, concerns about its sky-high valuation (shared by many analysts), and a heavy short interest continue making for a volatile mix.

The company has announced after the close its first earnings report as a public company will arrive on the afternoon of Feb. 5. Twitter's active user growth (apparently missed the company's 2013 target) will likely be in focus, as will its efforts to improve its soft international ad sales.
