Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) stock is gaining traction

Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) has been around for a dozen years at this point. In Silicon Valley years, that makes it an oldster on the tech front. But the micro-blogging site hasn’t seen the kind of meteoric rise that some of its contemporaries have seen. Its rise has been tempered with long bouts of doubt as other platforms have appeared on the scene and competition for the space has increased.

But the remarkable thing about TWTR, with its original 140 character limit, is that while it has tried to adapt and compete, the best thing that has happened to it (and TWTR stock) is that it has essentially stayed the same.

In an era when iteration takes everything from what it was to something barely recognizable, TWTR has made a few changes to its platform, but it is starting to be rewarded for allowing its followers to adapt the platform to their desires, rather than the company chasing customers’ desires.

And with Jack Dorsey back at the helm, this rational approach to the platform has also helped Twitter start to gain traction with advertisers as well.

To be sure, there are plenty of other social media platforms around and trying to remain relevant to younger audiences that tend to adopt anything new — for a time — as well as older audiences that have disposable income and more staying power is a very difficult fence to straddle.
