>> President Donald Trump loves to use Twitter to share his views and attack critics, bypassing traditional media outlets. But the social media network hasn't found a way to use that to its advantage. Twitter announcing Thursday its slowest revenue growth since gong public in 2013, the social media network showing only a paltry 4% growth in new users last quarter.
One analyst calling that shocking, given how much attention and free publicity it's getting from the President's frequent use. Advertisers growing tired of Twitter's slow growth in eyeballs jumping ship, choosing instead to put their money primarily with Facebook, but also with Instagram and Snapchat. The lack of user growth is just one problem.
Twitter is falling behind in video and other innovations, just as Snapchat ramps up ahead of its IPO. And playing catch up is hard to do when you have executives running for the exits. Investors are also getting wary of the excuses coming out of co-founder Jack Dorsey who was brought back in 2015 to turn things around.
Shares of Twitter tumbling 10% on Thursday.
