Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) new opportunities to grow market share and advertising with digital natives
It certainly hasn’t hurt that the president of the United States uses his Twitter account as his direct line to the public, outside the filter of the media and many times, his own advisors.
Whether people love him or hate him, they follow him. And those tweets are watched around the world by government leaders, intelligence sources and policymakers. They’re followed by business leaders and regular people.
In essence, as Twitter was losing its relevance, it was revived by one of the most controversial figures of the early twenty-first century.
But it’s not that Donald Trump deserves all the credit. CEO and founder Jack Dorsey has much to do with that. And now that social media is maturing, there are new opportunities that are helping Twitter to grow market share and advertising with digital natives.
Twitter has always been a unique platform, since until recently you were limited to expressing your thoughts in 140 characters or less (that has since been doubled). While it rewarded brevity and thought, the platform’s minimalist architecture made it difficult to find new avenues of growth.
It has proven its value in many natural disasters and uprisings in closed societies. It has an immediacy that other social media tools don’t provide as powerfully.
That said, social media companies are about growing their user bases and expanding revenues – something Twitter had a tough time doing.
Users became jaded as Jack Dorsey & Co. kept throwing things against the wall to see if they stuck – like Vine – and then, maybe, they would stay.
The problem is, if you’re not sure the micro-video format is going to be around, there’s little reason to dedicate your social media efforts toward it.
But all that is changing for the better, and it’s a key reason the stock is up 32% year-to-date, even after the big tech selloff in October. In the past year, it’s up 62%!
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.

A doji star occurred (where a doji gaps above or below the previous candle). This often signals a reversal with confirmation occurring on the next bar.
