However, share prices are still down some 45 percent this year and Twitter still needs to convince a skeptical investor market that it’s a good bet for the future, particularly when compared to its great rival, Facebook.

27% Of UK Viewers Use Social Media Whilst Watching TV [STUDY]

Much has been made of Twitter’s connection with TV, often by Twitter themselves – the company is betting big that its circular relationship with the major networks and their biggest shows is beneficial to all parties.

However, right now at least that synergy isn’t clear. Last month an NBC exec suggested that Twitter does not increase TV viewers, and new data from YouGov could provide some indication why.

Twitter Doesn't Increase TV Viewers, Says NBC

Twitter is betting big on its relationship with television, both in how networks and shows can tap into the firehose of tweets to drive awareness via ads, and how Twitter can convert that synergy into cash. Market your shows through us, Twitter says, and your audience will go through the roof.

Two-Thirds Believe Twitter's Stock Price Will Drop Over Next 6 Months [POLL]

Are you bullish about Twitter?

I am, certainly in the long term. But after the success of Twitter’s IPO, which saw the company set a price of $26 per share that soared to $44.90 by the end of the day, the stock has meandered somewhat, and currently sits at $41 and change.

How Many Active Users Does Twitter Have, And How Fast Is It Growing? [STATS]

How Many Active Users Does Twitter Have, And How Fast Is It Growing? [STATS]

Earlier today we looked at the big numbers for Twitter’s IPO filing with the SEC, and for the most part they were pretty underwhelming.
