What makes Twitter unique?

Twitter is the only public, real-time, distributed, and conversational platform that is at scale, says Twitter CEO Dick Costolo. That's whatever you want to broadcast on Twitter immediately shows. That's why we see many celebrities suffer Twitter backlash. But Twitter doesn't stop at just being a broadcaster, since people interact with each other on Twitter (that's why we have trending Topics), hence its suits brands connect with customers.

Twitter is distributed through the mobile ecosystem and third party platforms. And Mobile platforms are the in thing. Facebook saw a surge in its revenue primarily because of revenue from mobile platform. Costolo said that around 71% of the advertising revenue is generated from mobile devices.

Twitter CFO Mike Gupta said that for the 9 months ended September 2013, “we generated $422 million in revenue, more than double what we generated in the same period in the prior year.”  Advertising accounted for 89% and the remaining 11% was data licensing. --------
