But the real problem with Twitter and why we have been short this stock pretty much [..] is because their user growth had massively slowed down and what we finally see is them making moves between different features such as instant timeline or while you are away. But more importantly the search deal with Google that they went ahead and signed, where the Google will be able to access all the tweets coming and be able to show that when you do a search, we think that’s going to really help get their monthly active users, which has been a big problem for this company,” Niles said.
