Please take a look at the one-year chart of Twitter below with added notations:

As Twitter has moved higher in recent weeks, it has done so on expanding volume, which is a positive sign for the stock's trend. In addition, you can see that the stock has essentially created a higher daily low on each day during the rise.

A breach of those daily lows most likely means a pullback is underway, which should provide an exit for current holders of Twitter, while also giving those on the sidelines a chance to enter the stock at a lower price.
