Twitter stock slides on 2nd trading day
First Published Nov 08 2013 10:12 am • Last Updated Nov 08 2013 10:12 am

New York • Twitter’s stock is retreating on its second trading day after the popular short messaging service saw a huge first-day pop in what turned out to be a smooth public debut.

The stock had surged on Thursday, its first day trading, closing 73 percent higher than the $26 IPO price that was set on Wednesday night.
