Twitter has been in the doldrums for a while and its share price is at an all-time low. Lots of new features have been rolled out to make the social network more accessible but nothing has worked.
The latest attempt is the launch of a new homepage with curated content. Didn’t the homepage finally die with that leaked New York Times chart a couple of years ago with social referrals cited as the main reason?
Twitter’s homepage will probably be more an FB style newsfeed than the MSN homepage of old but it won’t be enough to raise the share price back up to $70.
Twitter is a great service but when examined on a global scale perhaps it’s always going to be niche.
