Tomahawk, WI 11/25/2013 (BasicsMedia) –  Depending on who you ask, it appears there is no universal view concerning whether Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR)’s IPO was a massive success or not. In the period immediately following its IPO, the company’s shares have dropped quite significantly. There is real concern as to whether this will continue for the next few weeks or even months. This is because investors are still wary of how Facebook shares plummeted immediately after its IPO. They can be forgiven for thinking that Twitter Inc is the new Facebook. Are they justified to hold such strong reservations?

A number of investors were polled recently regarding what they think Twitter Inc shares would be worth in the next six months. Close to 68% of the polled investors, believe that Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) shares will be worth less than they are now. A mere 8%vof the investors polled on their views for TWTR shares believe that it will be anywhere near what it worth currently. Slightly more than 12% of these investors believe that this stock will be worth higher than what investors are paying for it right now. Twelve percent of the investors claim they have no idea where it will be.

Many analysts believe that the company’s shares are currently trading at a level that makes them more expensive than those of its rivals. In essence, what this means is that investors are better off buying shares of other tech firms since they are cheaper compared to TWTR’s. The main reason given for this turn of events is that Twitter Inc has a huge potential of making rapid growth in the next few months compared to its peers, in the same and other industries. How that growth will be achieved is not clear since Twitter continues to lose a lot of money.

Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) has responsibilities to its shareholders and Wall Street too. Whatever it does, it needs to evaluate the impact of those actions on its shareholders. This is the reason the company has opted to go through an expansion program where it seeks to spread its operations in more countries across the world. Its decision to expand its activities across many nations in the international market has helped it lose a lot of money. The company’s decision to introduce several new products in the market has also contributed to the huge losses in money.

Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) still needs to do a lot more in order to convince its shareholders and Wall Street that it will not go the way of Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) If it goes through a similar path, it is difficult to say if TWTR will turn its fortunes around the way Facebook did. Initially, Facebook had no good news to report, and it is only in 2013 that it started changing its fortunes to an extent that it is now making profits. Twitter’s dynamics are slightly different considering that it boasts of users who are five times less than Facebook’s. Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR)’s new duties to its investors may help it or not.
