Twitter's growing influence on Wall Street and around the world has real-money consequences. According to new research from eMarketer, the network will double its revenue from mobile advertising this year and is on track to produce $1 billion worth of ad sales in 2014.
In short: Twitter is succeeding where Facebook (NASDAQ: FB ) and Yahoo! (NASDAQ: YHOO ) have struggled to make gains. Among social networks, only LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD ) , with its consistent record of near-100% growth, is moving as fast.
