Less Policy, Thanks
Twitter made a conscious decision to lower the political heat, not just for Trump.
The company has launched a service called Birdwatch. crowdfunding misinformation seeking on the platform. Testing “Review your tweet” This feature aims to end “anger-tweeting” when people get angry with a post and attack the person who posted it. (I can use this.)
They also suspend accounts and put more people on “Twitmo”, as the app’s victims say. I’m just leaving Twitmo after using the wrong word to refer to a political trend. I do not object as a matter of lawbut it cost me dearly and prevented people from finding my content outside of Twitter.
Allies of the former president Being kicked off Twitter and he complains loudly about it. Conservatives blame the platform “Liberal prejudice” and I want the state attorneys to follow. However, Neera Tanden, a liberal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) candidate who pursued a career mixed by old tweets.
Speaking Is Dangerous
CEO Jack Dorsey says 80% of Twitter usage is outside of the US There, Twitter faces a more difficult balancing act. The company claims to take a firm stand in favor of speaking, and although there is law on its part, he has no power.
Dorsey wants to grow its user base by 20% this year. Most of this earnings will have to come from where the government is Even more oppressive than India.
And it’s not just politics that is controversial. For example, there are birds in tweets about birds in Manhattan follow the tweeter to endanger the birds.
For analysts concerned about monetization, Twitter is looking for subscription revenue for: “Premium” features like Tweetdeckis currently free. Tips, customization of user pages, and the ability to “undo” tweets.
The company may also charge for allowing longer runs, analytics, and ad-free services. and account verification, award-winning “blue checkmark”. Also on Twitter a newsletter bought the companyRevue to compete with Substack and other money-making content. But, “Will you have to pay for Twitter this year?” It’s not a title the company wants to see.
TWTR Stock Subline
Twitter has a say in what it does. There is always a word.
But there is rarely performance. Twitter has always been marginally profitable. His best year was 2019, where he earned $ 1.46 billion, $ 1.87 per share. In 2020, revenue growth was only 7%.
I will only recommend TWTR stock when it shows consistent profits.
