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).
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.
