Twitter Revenue Should Exceed $2 Billion This Year

Twitter’s monthly active user number continues to underwhelm Wall Street, but one area where the company is killing it is quarterly revenues.

In Q4 2014, Twitter raked in more than $479 million, a 33 percent increase on Q3 ($361 million).

Indeed, last year Twitter earned more than one billion dollars in revenue for the first time in its history ($1.4 billion in total).

Twitter Revenue Should Exceed $2 Billion This Year

This year, Twitter should surpass that figure, with $2 billion in revenue very achievable. Twitter historically has a strong fourth quarter followed by a flat first quarter (in the next year), so don’t expect to see much more than $500 million in revenue for Q1 2015. But even if it just maintains that pace throughout the rest of the year – and there’s no reason to think that it won’t – Twitter will pull in $2 billion in revenues this year.

And if has another strong end to the year? $2.5, and maybe even $3 billion, are well within Twitter’s grasp.
