After a brief rise on Friday morning, shares of Twitter slipped in the second day of trading. The stock saw an early two-point slide for a four percent drop. As of mid-Friday morning, Twitter was trading at around $42.50 per share. That's down from its Thursday debut price of $45.10 , but still up more than 70 percent from the $26 per share at which the stock was originally priced. Chatter around the company's debut continued into Friday, with commenters dividing into two camps - those who thought Twitter's massive stock price pop was a good thing for retail and major investors, and those who argue that with the surge of nearly $20 up from its pricing, Twitter left more than $1 billion on the table .
