Twitter in the capital market has become a very difficult to make people excited about the company, since the beginning of the year, Wall Street has been quite the attitude and action
April of this year, twitter released a bad first quarter earnings, showing the worst quarterly earnings growth, since the stock price hit hard. From then on, push the situation has not changed, the company layoffs, and and co-founder of the West as the company's chief executive officer. So far, from the non GAAP financial data, Twitter is still not profitable.

In addition after years of decline, revenue has been restored, but the 2015 fiscal year is expected to grow in the US dollar, still less than $2012 in the fiscal year. In addition to the 2012 earnings per share up to $1.17, but this fiscal year, YAHOO's share of the profits if you can achieve 60 cents is already very lucky.
