Twitter is a household name around the world, providing a unique platform for its 300 million users. Twitter's user base is growing, albeit at a decelerating rate. Given Twitter's head start, it might be hard for competition to replicate or catch up to the company. In all likelihood, given its already sizable critical mass,  a modification of the product's direction, navigational ability and usability probably will improve the company's position in the advertising market share gain. Revenues at $502 million were up 61% in the second quarter, for a gain of $180 million, and compared favorably to guidance of $477.5 million. (1) Advertising revenue totaled $452 million, an increase of 63% year-over-year. Excluding the impact of year-over-year changes in foreign exchange rates, advertising revenue would have increased 71%. (2) Mobile advertising revenue was 88% of total advertising revenue. (3) Data licensing and other revenue totaled $50 million, an increase of 44% year-over-year. U.S. revenue totaled $321 million, an increase of 53% year-over-year. (4) International revenue totaled $181 million, an increase of 78% year-over-year. Average monthly active users (MAUs) were 316 million for the second quarter, up 15% year-over-year, and compared to 308 million in the previous quarter. Sequentially, the vast majority of MAUs added came from SMS Fast Followers. Excluding SMS Fast Followers, MAUs were 304 million for the second quarter, up 12% year-over-year, and compared to 302 million in the previous quarter. Mobile MAUs represented approximately 80% of total MAUs. That's a plus. EBITD rose 122% (after adjustments) and stood at $120 million compared to the company's forecast of about $100 million and the prior year's $54 million. The adjusted EBITD margin (before stock-based compensation) was a good 24%. The conversion of revenue to adjusted EBITD was 36%. In the past, Internet-based business with a similar conversion to cash flow have prospered and even flourished.    However, Twitter is struggling with added capital intensity. Depreciation rose 67% and interest grew $24.5 million year on year and nearly $50 million over the first six months and marginally on a sequential basis, indicating serious burn of cash and no free cash flow. In the second quarter the rate of change (delta) between adjusted and pure GAAP EBIT was a staggering $65 million, or $260 million annualized. At a 40x multiple, the annualized delta is more than $10.4 billion, representing about half of Twitter's current equity value. As well, the share count is up 8% on an annualized basis (655 million shares outstanding at the end of the 2015 second quarter versus 595 million shares at the end of the second quarter of 2014). The above metrics didn't count in the bubble period and my judgment is that a takeover transaction will happen before they matter as Twitter's current property value is not prohibitive to the largest potential acquirers. If it someday becomes a  problem, that is a high-class problem to the buyer (or investor) now. Twitter's enterprise value of less than $19 billion and its 12-month trailing adjusted EBITD is $525 million, a 37x multiplier. A management change is imminent, and sh
