Twitter Inc. investors who heeded the advice of high-profile banks such as Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Deutsche Bank AG to buy the social media company's shares might be kicking themselves.The stock fell Wednesday as low as $37.24, 50 percent below its peak of $74.73 the day after Christmas, wiping almost $18 billion off Twitter's market capitalization.Year-on-year growth in the number of Twitter users has fallen for five straight quarters, and the company said Tuesday that its 255 million monthly users, on average, appeared to check the service less frequently than a year ago.Twitter said in 2010 that it aims one day to have 1 billion users.Some of the analysts who downgraded the stock in December are not as confident in Twitter's long-term outlook, much of which will hinge on the company's ability to increase both the number of users and how much time they spend on the site.
