Twitter Inc (TWTR) Unlikely To Benefit From Facebook's News Feed Overhaul


That's the spoils of outcompeting traditional media for the role of the top news purveyor to the United States public - Facebook's most important audience in monetisation terms. The piece is meant to provide Facebook with a roadmap to fix some of its biggest issues.

Questions remain if app traffic can really compensate the decline in Facebook reach, with media company's apps previously falling short and seeing little uptake in the Australian market.
