Why don't you do a little research and see if the individuals who were offered the position
were qualified .... I guarantee you they were more than qualified .
They simply said [ very clearly ] they did not want the position .
Don't take my word for what I've written , do the research and see for yourself .
When you've completed the research come back and tell me whether or not they
were qualified .
".... all the changes, deals, and product enhancements ...."
I haven't seen the changes , Wall Street hasn't seen the changes nor have investors
seen the changes .
Name a change , deal or product enhancement that has been accretive to Twitter , noisecapturer .
In the case of Alibaba , there was the " SAIC white paper " which dealt with
fake products and items prohibited under Chinese laws.

The Chinese government made a fortune when Alibaba went public .
Don't be naive , dinotrader .
Are you one of those people who thinks that a European exercise is something you
do in the gym or that a vanilla option is in lieu of a chocolate one ?

You displayed such ignorance in your reply to my original post .
Do you read ?
Do you listen ?
What EXACTLY is your understanding of Twitter ?

In the company’s fiscal first quarter that ended in June, gross merchandise value (GMV) rose 34% year over year and 12% sequentially. Mobile GMV rose from 33% of all sales a year ago to 55% and from 51% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, which ended in March.
Now the company is saying that the September quarter’s GMV is likely to be down by mid-single digits compared with its prior expectations. The trouble, according to the company, is that shoppers are spending less per order, even though traffic is steady.
The problem with that conclusion, of course, is that traffic should be growing and apparently it is not. When an Internet company stops showing user growth, there is generally some fundamental issue that needs fixing and that the company has either failed to address or addressed unsuccessfully.

"Mark Mobius, Tom DeMark and George Magnus -- world-renowned forecasters who view markets through three very different lenses -- are all finding common ground with their predictions that Chinese shares have further to drop.
