The micro-blogging site has been on a downtrend since hitting an all-time high of $74.73 last Thursday, falling close to 18% in the three days since on little news.

They were down about 6.15% to $59.84 in recent trade.

Other next-generation tech giants followed Twitter into the red on Monday, with Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) slumping about 1.15% to $54.80 and LinkedIn (NASDAQ:LNKD) sliding about 1% to $214.20.
