(Yahoo)   Twitter shares fall more than 9% after the company announces it has purged another 70 million fake accounts. Maybe Russia needs to reprogram some of its bots to go to ZeroHedge and Motley Fool and proclaim Twitter the "buy of the century"   ( yahoo.com) divider line

Just wait.

Just wait until they purge Donald John Trump. I wonder how much share prices will fall when they go after the Don of Fake News and not just the little Russian soldiers?

Motley Fool Answers is still a good podcast, but much of fool.com has become very ckickbaity.  I used to hold it in higher regard.

If everyone invested in twitter lost every penny tomorrow (myself included - I have total stock index funds as my primary vehicle and twitter is included of course) I would not shed a tear. I thought it would be a valuable platform back in the arab spring days but lately I'm of a mind that all this data harvesting shiat is a pox on the species.

I've yet to see what real actual value Twitter has.

Fool dot com was a good resource when I was getting out of debt and starting to save.

Now that my finances are in "fire and forget" mode, I haven't had to go there in years.

leave Motley Fool and the Bro alone!

Until they start purging everyone that breaks the terms of service, I don't care about their stock price.

I've often wondered what the long term effect will be on Twitter of being so heavily associated with The Orange One.

I would be absolutely ecstatic to lose my Twitter account.

I haven't used it since sending a farewell note to DLR for the Rosetta/Philae End of Mission.

Twitter is never going to banhammer Trump.

If they ever did though, oh man! THAT would be epic.

=====================

Also-- did Twitter ever figure out a way to monetize its business? Can you actually trade stock in a company that has no clue how to make money?

I imagine Twitter's overhead is pretty low. Maybe they can get by just on selling data on who is retweeting who.

Maybe this is an issue that was put to rest long ago.

I never understood why it had such a high valuation to begin with.
 
2018-07-09 10:06:23 PM  
How many followers did Trump lose?

Twitter needs to be purged from the internet completely.
 
2018-07-09 10:45:15 PM  
And yet, new troll and bot accounts are being created at a pace that nearly matches the suspensions.

I don't understand how or why Twitter is a publicly traded company.
My worthless .02 would also say that $14/share was a more accurate assessment of a widget that does dick-all except serve as the Goddamned Mouth of Sauron.*
