    The Twitter IPO is being touted by CNN Money as "The year's most highly anticipated IPO" but I have my doubts about the kind of revenue it can generate. It's certainly no Google, or Facebook, and the opportunities to montetise their service seem a little more limited.

    However, I haven't read their prospectus so I really have no idea what they have planned, but it had better to be good to justify a $14.2 billion market capitalisation.

    Twitter lists tonight at $26 a share. Any thoughts?

    Re: TWTR - Twitter IPO

    This is interesting especially given the FB comeback. There are still concerns that FB is going out of flavor with teens and this is not a good sign for growth. Twitter is starting with a lower membership and its a different business model for sure.

    To me its just a matter of interest more than anything. I'm curious how well it does compared to FB more as a feel for sentiment.

    FB caused allot of angst amongst the mom and dad crowds, according to the muppets. So i wonder how many of them will have the gonads to try it again.

    I'll likely watch it open just for interest sake though. The symbol is TWTR....

    It's much easier to see how FB could become redundant or out of fashion than it is twitter.
    Twitter is so micro, it's basically an 'open to the public texting system.'
    It's simplicity and practicality is it's strength.
    Facebook, on the other hand, is much more about presenting your 'self art' to the world.
    They have to keep developing, taking over and morphing into what ever looks like being the next big thing.

    I thought the debut would be strong on this basis.
    But couldn't get any.
    Will be looking to buy it when dot.com boom 0.2 Busts.

    Didn't quite get the twitter and FB analysis right :eek: but hey there's still time and opportunity.
    News Corp should buy this now!!!!!!!!

    Any way, here's a really tricky question. What should you do next time twitter gets shot out of the sky on it's earnings report? (the little e's at the bottom show the timing of the earnings reports)

    If it happens again I'd stick with it, but who gets to shoot the same bird out of the sky 4 x :cool:

    Also note the upside down head and shoulders at the bottom of the down trend broken and retraced. (it's one of those moments)
