Twitter

Twitter, the social media site that numerous celebrities and many others use, got some much needed good news this weekend when they had their best closing value since the beginning of the year. Over the storied history of Twitter this looks to be a small sign of good things to come.

Twitter has been scorned for their weak outlook and self regulation on their abuse and harassment issues that have plagued every social media site. They are hoping to rectify that problem with a new policy update. Stricter rules and harsher punishments always seem to be a good way to keep the malcontents at bay.

Do Netflix Results Reflect Future Expectations?

Netflix

Netflix has been on a good run backed up by growth in consumer subscription. Netflix Results show the number of subscribers keeps growing by the day surpassing even the entities own expectations.

New subscribers

The firm today confirmed that it now has over 5 million new subscribers. The bulk of the subscription comes from the international market, with 850,000 coming from the U.S alone.The reason for the drive has primarily been due to the rise in spending in a bid to create original content. This move looks to be paying off big time.

Slow U.S growth

However, it is not going to be a bed of roses for the company. There is an expectation that US subscription will be lower than it was the same time last year. The recent hiking of viewership fees is the likely cause for the lag in U.S. The bone of contention is finding a way to push market value in the midst of burgeoning production costs.
