Earlier this year I took a look at how Twitter’s stock had performed compared to Facebook’s in 2014.
The short answer: pretty poorly. While they started the year tracking each other pretty closely, by July Facebook was outperforming Twitter by an eye-opening 80 percent.
Fast-forward five months later, and that situation has got even worse.
Since January 1st Facebook’s stock is up 39 percent for the year, whereas Twitter’s is down 47 percent.
Which gives a like-for-like spread that’s 86 percent in Facebook’s favour.
