NFT: Question about Twitter Stock

Samiam : 12/14/2017 11:44 am
I think the stock dropped big time since it was started but it seems to have stabilized and is inching up slowly. With so many people using it, especially the President, there has to be a way for the company to make money. I saw how Facebook tanked at first before zooming up. Is there hope for Twitter to do something similar?
of course

they will need to keep striking deals for content like they did with the NFL to increase their revenue stream. I'd say its likely they continue this trend but I have no real input as to whether the stock is worth buying or not.

Personally I don't use or like Twitter but I see its value. Like anything else they need to increase their content.
I bought it at $49

It seems to have price support (meaning it would take some really bad news) around $17-$18.

Their problem has been how to monetize the product. Twitter isn't like facebook necessarily. When I bought it I thought what the OP did. EVERYBODY uses twitter and now the leader of the free world 'lives on it'. They need to figure out how to get ad dollars, pay per view or some other way to make money on it.

I don't have a twitter account :(
bought at 30

and sold it at 17 this season
They don't have that many users, that is the problem: user growth

330 million active users in Q3 2017 compared to 300 million in Q1 2015.

Compare that to facebook who over the same period added 500 million users to bring their total to 2 billion. So unless twitter figures out a way to engage new users or monetize the crap out of them, the stock will continue to languish.

Not to mention that a sizable, non-zero percentage of "active users" are actually bots that instantly reply to tweets. Many services are out there that let you pay for essentially fake followers.
I don't think user growth is the problem

plenty of great companies have a much smaller user base. Twitter needs content, plain and simple. Adding content will also add users as well.
I bought it at 17 and sold it at 20.

I do think it has upside and itís not like itís going to go out of business But I donít think itís going to shoot up anytime soon dramatically
Twitter should buy (or rip off) HQ Trivia

it desperately needs to find a way to get new users on the platform and engage
Square has been the better buy

That platform is used everywhere in the tri-state, including the place I just ate lunch at. It retreated recently but is more than double the value of Twitter.

seems to me that google would be the best company to buy twitter

because twitter's power isn't in the amount of users but rather it's power to be a real time search engine.
