Faster Growth Predicted For Twitter

World Cup tweets may help fuel faster growth for TwitterA new report from Evercore predicts a “strong possibility” that Twitter’s growth will speed up in the second quarter of this year, helped by millions of tweets from the 2014 World Cup.

Back in April, Twitter had reported 25% growth in the first quarter of 2014, a drop from the 30% growth rate of the previous period.

“Easing user growth comparisons, combined with strong engagement driven by the World Cup in June, lead us to expect domestic user growth re-acceleration,” said Ken Sena, an analyst at Evercore (Bloomberg). This prediction has also fueled an uptick in stock prices, although Twitter stock is still down 35% so far this year.

How much will the buzz around the World Cup help fuel Twitter’s growth?
