Twitter 8-10 Billion?
« on: February 14, 2011, 10:36:08 am »
So ladies and gents, you know the site, you know the random post, you know the addicts. Everyone seems to be on Twitter, its a very active community. 50 Cent tweets and some random stock price jumps ridiculously (then drops once people get a grip on reality). Kayne cleverly flips out on someone/thing and major news outlets pick up his tweet and reports on it.
On the serious side an entire country rips down the Internet to prevent its people from allowing them to spread what is going on. Twitter, Facebook have become a great threat against government controlled media, these sites have proven that they do have a value.

However how many other effen mindless tweets do we need? We could all say blindly that the majority of tweets that get posted in a day are mind junk. So if we are in agreement that the "important" tweets are in the minority whats up with WSJ putting it out there that Twitter might be worth 8-10 Billion?

Think of twitter as a regular non-internet based company... Does that price tag make any sense. I swear the second anything becomes Internet based it starts to twinkle and sparkle. People start thinking that there is this great digital secret that allows twitter to bring in secret stashes of cash by the trailer.
Have any of you or anyone else you know actually bought something on twitter?
Do you see a flurry of advertisements littering twitter?

Selling data under the table only gets you so far $ wise and no where near 8 Billie.

To be fair Twitter themselves are reporting that the 8-10 Billion evaluation is a rumor because if they agreed to it then the next question would be really? How?

If Facebook is valued at 50 Billion
Twitter is valued at 9 Billion

What lesser known site do you find very valuable and what valuation would you put it at?
