Twitter’s earnings next week are bound to draw attention as the instability at the company continues.
On this week’s podcast, Amir elaborated on his story previewing Twitter’s revenue and user growth. It’s not all bad news for the company, as brand ads are outperforming expectations. But direct response ads are starting to hit the ceiling.
He and Tom also explain why a Twitter that’s good for power users isn’t the kind of Twitter that’s going to be successful in the future.
Our other topic is Github, the social network and code repository for programmers. The company has been shaken by disagreement over whether to sell to enterprise clients or pivot back to the founding, developer-centric mindset of the community. Steve discusses.
