While it's too early to say, it looks like a trend could be forming around Twitter earnings. Is it a good time to bet against the social media giant?

On the other hand, it would be prudent to consider the opposite option: contrarians might be salivating over the prospect of a favorable reaction on the heels of meager expectations.
