- Twitter's stock performance has far surpassed that of rival social platforms Facebook and Snap.
- Shares of Twitter have nearly doubled the gains of Snap and left Facebook's stock in the dust.
Shares of Twitter have run up nearly 50 percent year to date, practically doubling Snap's 24 percent year-to-date gain and leaving shares of Facebook, up less than 5 percent, in the dust.
Twitter's stock is also the best performer for the past 12 months. In the last year, shares of Twitter have climbed over 130 percent. Facebook's stock gained a little over 30 percent over the same time frame.
Founded in 2006, the San Francisco-based Twitter has gotten a serious boost from President Donald Trump, who frequents its platform to spread his message.
Shares of Twitter were down roughly 3.5 percent as of 2 p.m. ET on Tuesday, hovering around $34 a share. The downtrend began on Monday after the company suspended several popular accounts, some with millions of followers, for violating its new anti-spam rules.
