Twitter a Victim of Rumors On Its Own Platform

Apparently there were rumors on Twitter about, well, Twitter shutting down next year:

Social media started buzzing with the hashtag #SaveTwitter early on Thursday, with more than 100,000 tweets mentioning the hashtag by early afternoon.

It was unclear how the rumour started although some tweets said it originated from a Twitter user who complained about online bullying and Twitter’s poor handling of such abuses.

Maybe someone is attempting to short sell Twitter’s stocks?
