Yeah you read the title right, Twitter didn’t grow at all during the last quarter. In typical Twitter fashion, shares began to slide before the earnings call and then completely tanked when it became clear just how bad things were over the last quarter.
I have laid off Twitter for a couple of months, you know, give them a break from the constant bashing because thats what it feels like I am doing most of the time. I’m not going to start beating on them again (well not that much anyway) because Twitter will always have a special place for me.
With social media it has become an all too familiar feeling when you hit the unfollow button. You feel the guilt of doing it and the person you were following finds out and starts wondering and asking what they have done wrong.

Over the past number of weeks, Pokemon Go has won the hearts and praise of a vast majority of users. The game has been a wild hit with more than 20 million people in the U.S. playing it daily, that is twice the usage of Facebook.
