Abstract

In mid-April 2014, a technology analyst working for a large North American investment bank was scrutinizing Twitter as part of her analysis for an industry note on the company. Twitter, a micro blogging service that allows subscribers to send “tweets” of 140 characters or less to their “followers,” had launched a successful initial public offering (IPO) on the New York Stock Exchange in November 2013, which valued the company at $24.46 billion. By the end of March 2014, Twitter’s market capitalization had risen to $26.63 billion. Yet, despite posting revenues of $242 million in the final quarter of 2013, according to Twitter’s first publicly disclosed accounts, the company made a net loss of $511 million in the same quarter.2
