Twitter turned 10 on Monday and while it might be celebrating at the moment, there are some sobering facts to contend with including a 65 percent drop in its share price in the last year, discontent from Wall Street and concerns over whether it can continue to add users.
Jack Dorsey returned to the helm of the company he founded last year, replacing Dick Costolo, but has yet to make a big impact, though has stabilized the ship to some extent.
While revenue growth for Twitter's 2015 fiscal year was strong, reaching $2.2 billion, a 58 percent year-on-year rise, monthly active users (MAUs) in its fourth quarter were 320 million, remaining flat on the previous quarter.
Adding to the problems, its advertising revenue growth is forecast to fall from 45 percent this year to 35 percent in 2017, according to eMarketer data.
For investors, MAU is a key metric and has been the reason Twitter's stock has tanked 65 percent in the past 12 months to just under $17, significantly its $26 initial public offering (IPO) price.
