SAN FRANCISCO---Twitter has built a digital town
square that s teeming with activity but riddled with
financial potholes. Seven years after co-founder
Jack Dorsey sent the first tweet through the online
messaging service, more than 500 million posts
are shared each day by everyone from the Dalai
Lama to Justin Bieber.
But all the chirping hasn t translated to profits---
nor is it expected to any time soon.
As Twitter prepares to complete its initial public
offering of stock this week, the San Francisco com-
pany s history of losses totaling nearly US$500 million
is raising questions about its ability to turn a cultural
phenomenon into a sustainable business.
Twitter s IPO promises to be another touchstone
in the Internet s evolution from a geeky backwater
to a wellspring of world-changing innovation and
jaw-dropping wealth. In that sense, the company s
stock market debut shares parallels with the IPOs of
two rivals: online social networking leader Facebook
Inc, which went public nearly 18 months ago, and
search engine leader Google Inc, which made the
leap to Wall Street in 2004.
But Facebook and Google were already profitable
by the time they went public. By contrast, Twitter s
coming out is a throwback to the late 1990s, a more
perilous time in Internet investing---when hundreds
of dot-com companies completed IPOs without ever
having earned a profit.
"They have a nice and interesting base to build
Challenges abound for
