    Twitter Earnings Christened, Shares Sink by Zacks Investment Research

    Social media firm Twitter (TWTR - Trend Report) announced its first public earnings announcement after the bell Wednesday, beating revenue estimates but failing to reach analysts' active monthly user targets. As a result, TWTR shares are down big in the after-market.

    So you want to be a stock market star (with apologies to Roger McGuinn)? Ask Facebook (FB - Trend Report) -- it ain't often easy right out of the gate, especially among Internet-based companies whose analysts, while studious and learned, don't have wide-ranging comparisons to make or widgets to count beyond things like user base numbers.

    Apparently, 184 million mobile users -- up 37% year over year -- is indeed something to sneeze at; Twitter shares are down 12% in after-hours trading following the company's inaugural announcement. Twitter posted a revenue beat -- $243 million in the quarter as opposed to the $221 expected -- and its recent patent deal with IBM (IBM - Trend Report) should help decrease Twitter's intellectual property vulnerability going forward (Twitter bought 900 patents from IBM recently).

    Ahead of the closing bell Twitter stock was up 43% since its IPO, so perhaps the late-market trading is selling the news. The shares rose 8% a couple weeks back when Facebook posted its stellar quarter numbers.

    But average revenue per 1000 timeline views -- a key metric for a company like Twitter -- is currently $1.49. This is up 76% since this time last year. It would seem that if you were in TWTR merely short-term, you've got a re-think on your hands. But ask Facebook investors if their patience has managed to pay off.
