Facebook vs Twitter – Facebook is winning
Despite the 50% growth that Twitter will announce – plus the impressive growth of Twitter UK, which is expected to bring in £150m next year - the social network is lagging behind like sparrow with a broken wing. Expectations were that it would make £180m, so it’s not all exactly chirpy chirpy cheep cheep for its disappointed investors.
Twitter’s relative slowdown in growth is in stark contrast to the terrifying rise of Facebook, which is growing like an uncontrollable boil on the internet’s arse. It tripled its profits in the first quarter thanks to its new annoying and intrusive ad strategy, and it’s predicted that it will make £721m in 2015.
But let's face it, Twitter is still more fun, isn't it? And you don’t have to put up with some dipshit sharing Britain First posts and clicking on pictures of children with cancer holding hand-drawn signs saying 'Help us get to 10,000 Likes!'
