Twitter IPO Infographic on CNBC

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

As seen on CNBC.

We’re huge fans of Twitter at Mashwork. So when we got the opportunity to work with CNBC to create an infographic about Twitter’s recent IPO, we naturally got really excited.

For this infographic, we studied conversation across the social web the day before and through Twitter’s initial public offering on November 7th, analyzing how people on social media felt about the social netwok as it went through the next step of its maturation.

Interestingly, people felt very divided about Twitter going public. Many individuals expressed the opinion that Twitter was an over-valued company, and many said that it would make a poor investment. Other people were more optimistic, with people talking about how they wish they could invest.

What do you think? Take a look at our research and give us your two cents in the comments below.

Why is this you ask?

Well, complaints included the agreement being too long for starters, while others just flat out didn’t care — they just wanted access to a site or service.

But really, should you care about what you’re potentially agreeing to?

In an ideal world, yes. However, the fact of the matter is that if you want to be on Facebook with your friends, you’ll agree to their terms, as there’s no way for you to negotiate your own terms of service.
