how can a website lose that much cash?
it's too east for people to dis them in replies that everyone sees
so I tweeted to the pub account 'open the other side you cunts' (not exactly but kind of)
a restaurant while we were still eating. I didn't know she'd done it until the owner came over to apologise. It was so awkward and lame.
but THE POWER!
you smile to their faces and complain when you get home
Get an accountant to explain it to you...
Things like depreciation, amortisation, interest, provisions for future liabilities and all that stuff cost the business money in accounting terms but don't actually involve cash outflow from the business.
this got tasty, fast.
"A spicy meatball"
its a dis thread though m8
when you can do it for free?
As tweets can disappear quite quickly. Text even if sourced from Google would make them quite a bit of cash. Of course most Twitter access is done via apps so they'd have to install these on their own app as well. Yeah people would get another app, but really people are lazy.
built upon? Companies coming up with #'s left right and center... all you need to watch is one episode of WWE's programming to see out of hand it can get #Kane4President #Yesyesyes #JohnCenasBalls
"For the last three months of 2013, Twitter said it made a net loss of $511m but on revenues that more than doubled to $243m."
This means if income is $243m, expenditure is $754m. That's some serious spending.
it's all amortisation mate
is usually applied to intangible assets. A typical amortisation rate might be over ten years, so for most of that quarter's costs to be amortisation they would need to have capitalised, say, goodwill of $30bn at some point, which seems excessive.
Please try not to be so glib in future.
that's what I meant
it's a complete pile of shite now. i just want to read my timeline, not other shit that you stick on it.
there's no where to stick your thumb now
