Cramer: Why Twitter is like Shakespeare

Despite many efforts to monetize its product, Twitter seems to be "constantly in motion doing nothing," CNBC's Jim Cramer said Tuesday.

"It's Shakespeare," Cramer said, referring to "Much Ado About Nothing."

Cramer made his remarks on "Squawk on the Street" after Re/code reported that the company has held talks to acquire Flipboard, a social network aggregation mobile app, for over $1 billion.

"If it helps them monetize, which some people say it would, that's fine. I know the whole problem with Twitter is that all the little things they do come up with don't move the needle," Cramer said.

""I think that [Twitter CFO] Anthony Noto is trying. I think that they're trying, [but] every time I talk to advertisers they say the same thing: 'We're not really getting our bang for our buck.'"
