Twitter’s first quarter was rough, and Jack Dorsey the company’s interim CEO warns of slower growth in the near term.  “There’s no single more important number than monthly active users,” Mark Mahaney, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets said to FORBES prior to today’s release. “Three hundred million is a big number to begin with, but against the expectations and what’s implied in the valuation, it’s not big enough.”  Recently Twitter has made a number of changes to its products and to its site to make it more relevant and intuitive.  Twitter’s buyout of video live streaming app Periscope could help it appeal to users looking for a live experience. Although the forthcoming changes are significant, however it isn’t clear that they will drive real user growth. Mahaney indicated that adding 16 million new users is probably necessary to generate the inertia the company needs to drive the stock price in a positive direction.
