TWTR intraday short

Yeah so I caught a nice short trade in TWTR but really screwed it up leaving ~30-40%.
One of my issues is that I don’t slow down my exit process.  I.e find very small timeframe to get big, I magnify the size and shrink my risk range down for the trade planning on scalling early but fail to to slow down once I am down to a much less risky size and take the whole thing off –  a huge leak in the long run.

I took my last piece off at 62.33 and 62.39, leaving over .50 cents on the table.

I was short stock and long weekly puts, mostly stock.
