Michael Girdley (@Girdley) and Bill D’Alessandro (@BillDA) discuss the Twitter deal at this special Episode. We talk about the financials, the value, cashflow expenses considerations, vested vs unvested stock treatment, both businesses’ performances within Twitter (Ads & B2B), pricing power potential, how we would turnover cost centers to profit sources, new product ideas, breaking out of the culture bubble, and much more!
