Twitter May Be Struggling, But It Still Has $3.5B

It’s no secret that Twitter has faced several huddles in the past few months, including layoffs, blackouts and a crumbling stock price.

This week is no different. Four major executives announced they are leaving the struggling microblogging site, signaling trouble to many in the industry.

Kurt Wagner of Re/code joins Here & Now’s Robin Young with details on what has been going on inside Twitter and what these recent developments may mean for its future.
