In this edition of The Motley Fool's "Ask a Fool" series, Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Brendan Mathews take a question from a reader who writes: "Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) stock price is almost near 52 weeks low. What is your opinion on buying Twitter stock?"

Jason talks about how the coming decade for social media stocks will be all about engagement, and Twitter is at the forefront of the second screen movement. While bigger players in the space, like Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), have more monthly active users, Twitter is making great strides in new ways to keep users engaged, and there is plenty of opportunity to grow sales beyond just advertising. Perhaps the smartest way investors can play the growing social media is to own a little bit of each of the big names like Twitter, LinkedIn (NYSE:LNKD.DL) and Facebook.
