Twitter stock slides in pre-market trading

Despite the good news in Twitter’s first quarterly earnings report as a publicly traded company — particularly stronger-than-expected revenue of $243 million and $0.02 earnings per share — the stock was down more than 20 percent in pre-market trading. Just before trading opened, the stock was at $51.40, more than 22 percent below its closing price of $65.97. The reason for the slide seems to be the company’s slow user growth in 2013: an increase of just 30 percent year-over-year. Pre-market shares tend to be more volatile than after the opening bell, but it’s still not looking very pretty.
