Do you guys think Google will lap it up?
Seems ripe for Facebook or Alphabet.
I'll give em $100
A company that is losing hundreds of millions of dollars a year will be sold for billions.
I have got to recalibrate my calculator.
hope it's not facebook otherwise they'll charge and the reach will be crap
So as long as someone tells they are making a loss, they can hype up what growth could be, without getting busted by SEC,FBI or FTC?
Only if they are crazy. Been following Twitter stocks and articles about it for at least a year, They tried EVERYTHING to monetize it and they failed.
All that is well above my pay grade.
It would be really insane if Google would indeed gobble up Twitter. I wonder what that means for us, IM guys?
This is Wall Street Style of business. Just keep growing your revenue even at the expense of losing money. Then raise more funding from the public. Eventually break up the Company into separate entities and dispose the toxic asset. Purchase another Company or existing business, write a good story about it then raise funding again. Eventually do a stock split to raise even more money while diluting the share of existing shareholder. At the same time issue corporate bonds. Take these toxic corporate bonds and tied up with triple A rated bonds, sell them to the investors as structured investment grade product. See easy right? More money and no worries about losses.
No other industry but tech has this level of overvaluation even with years of loses without any kind of assets.
But a presidential candidate is using it religiously, it must be valuable, right?

I'm sure their losses is because they haven't got a billion users yet.
Nice blackhat way to make money lol.
At the end of the day it's all about how you play the game.
You can target for sustainability like Google or you can go for exponential revenue like Facebook.
Apparently Twitter did neither . Was never sure about their strategy but i guess there wan't any to start with .
We have seen a lot of ventures like this which starts with great promises but ends up nowhere . Take LinkedIn for an example .
That's modern capitalism where banks can print money.
A soccer star is sold for 200 million Euros....
To me it's all virtual money which makes zero sense, but my younger friends tell me it's all perfectly normal.
I hope mark will buy it so he can deal with all the bots spamming twitter those days lol
I hope Facebook doesn't come near it
With Soccer its over time and the clubs make alot from merchandise and tv revenue, and ticket sales.
Why is it so difficult for them to make a profit? Why cant they just slap ads on the feeds or something and boom profits. It seems like it would be such an easy task. Or convert amazon links without referers into their own referall code. That's what tumblr does.
It just baffles me how they can't monetize billions of visitors.
I hope Google does buy them. I love Google/Alphabet as a company and want to see them succeed in the social media world. I really enjoy Google+ the communities aspect is very cool. Sadly it's just not very popular. It would be awesome if Google purchased Twitter.
Everyone knows that online / ecom / search etc is going to play a bigger and bigger role as technology moves on, that's why I think companies like Twitter are so attractive. Because of the user data.
I think it's more suited to FB but then twitter user base is tiny compared to theirs.
Maybe Google will buy them just to try and help with their struggling attempt at social media?
