Twitter Tackles Spam... Sort Of

Who needs to follow 400 new Twitter accounts EVERY DAY? I swear #Twitter encourages fake accounts since it inflates their user numbers. Bearish on $TWTR

The Trump Tariff Put Will Expire Worthless
Moon Kil Woong 9/24/2018 5:06:06 AM

The market is not going up because of a #Trump put, it is going up because of the tax cut without a spending cut. This is called fiscal stimulus and it has negated the rather limited drop in monetary stimulus. If anything, the #tariffs and shenanigance in Washington over Internet regulation is holding the market back. If tariffs are cut and the trade war ends it will be a positive just like if the absurd hearings on #Twitter, #Google, and #Facebook end, that will help those stocks.

If or when this happens is debatable. Certainly if the whole market starts tanking, hopefully both of these will end and the government will focus on their job rather than creating more problems. Unfortunately, this is most likely to happen when the economy turns sour, providing limited relief, but most likely it will not turn the tide by itself.

The Tech War Happening Beyond The Great Fire Wall: Who Will Win?

So here is a thought - if #WeChat copied #Twitter, but then expanded into mobile payments since nearly everyone there has a WeChat account, and the company has exploded in growth as a result, why doesn't Twitter copy them for the US and do the same? $TWTR

Twitter Plunges After US Monthly Users Drop; Ad Revenues Tumble
Angry Old Lady 7/27/2017 10:30:53 PM

Maybe people are so sick of hearing what #Trump has to say, that they are avoiding #Twitter all together. Seeing how our President just re instituted discrimination into our armed forces is enough to make me turn $TWTR off.

I would have thought having #Twitter as the official mouth piece of the US government (or at least #Trump) would have had a positive impact on Twitter's active users. $TWTR

#Twitter lost 2 MILLION users since their last quarter??? Time to dump this stock. $TWTR

I'm pretty sure #Facebook makes virtually all of it's ad dollars from #mobile. Not sure if any of that will apply to mobile anyway.

But I expect as usage increases, Facebook will continue to excel in generating ad revenue. For whatever reason, #Twitter never lived up to it's potential. $TWTR $FB

Twitter Plunges After US Monthly Users Drop; Ad Revenues Tumble

Fascinating video. I agree the system is flawed, but not just because of fraud.

For example, #Twitter has a partnership with #AmericanExpress, where you can get access to exclusive benefits and discounts by tweeting a specific hashtag after linking your #Amex card to Twitter. But you can only link 1 card to one account. But many people have multiple Amex cards. I literally HAD to create several additional Twitter accounts just to take advantage of this program and maximize my benefits. $TWTR $AMEX $AXP

Is Advertising On Facebook "A Waste Of Money?"

Unbelievable video! I suspect it is the same for #Twitter $FB $TWTR

The entire #Twitter & Facebook system is flawed. Check out this video which exposes all. It's a real eye opener to the inner workings of how advertising at these companies work. $TWTR $FB:

It's true. Not just on Twitter though. You can buy #Facebook or #Twitter follows by the thousands. And thousands of companies/individuals offer this service. If thousands of people own thousands of fake accounts... well you can do the math. $FB $TWTR

Bill Johnson 7/27/2017 9:42:43 PM

I agree, Moon. But I've long believed that a huge percentage of #Twitter's users are "fake" users. Either created by the company themselves, or by marketers. $TWTR

3 Keys To Twitter's Turnaround
Kurt Benson 5/2/2017 11:23:05 PM

Excellent job highlighting #Twitter's possible potential and shortcomings. I think you've hit the nail on the head regarding the problems the company needs to overcome. But being that they've yet to figure it out, despite having more than enough time to do so, makes me wary of $TWTR.

8 Reasons Why We're Not Snapping Snap's IPO
Bindi Dhaduk 3/10/2017 6:43:59 PM

#Snap is going to very quickly replace #Twitter. Change always comes from the next generation - among my friends, I don't know anyone who still uses Twitter; they've all moved over to #Snap. Just like with #Facebook, all you old folks will eventually follow suit. $FB $TWTR $SNAP
