Faster Growth Predicted For Twitter
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.
