It has a more than 300 million regular users and often dominates conversation in the media. But unlike Facebook, it has never convincingly found a way of translating that chatter into serious revenues. Some companies can’t keep up with the investment required. Take Netflix, for example. It has built a fantastic model, and is turning traditional TV upside down. But all those new shows are hugely expensive to make and will take vast sums of money to pay for them all.
