Do Tweets still have a business role?
Apr 17, 2016 1:00 AM - Would you deal with a 10-year-old company whose financial statements are splashed with red ink, a result of accumulated losses totaling slightly more than $2 billion; a company where senior staff offices seem to have revolving doors; and a stock price -- often seen as a barometer of a company's health -- that earlier this year seemed to be on a downhill run? Your answer probably is "Yes." The company is Twitter Inc., and chances are you at least occasionally send, or receive, its ubiquitous tweets. After all, there are about 65 million Twitter users in the United States, part of a total of 320 million worldwide.
