BuzzFeed is getting into the smart appliance business with the Tasty One Top

BuzzFeed One Top Here’s a sentence I never expected to write: BuzzFeed is making its first smart appliance, the Tasty One Top, available for pre-order. It sounds a little weird for a digital media company to try to sell you a fancy hot plate, but this is part of BuzzFeed Product Labs, which was created last year following the acquisition of e-commerce startup Scroll. The team’s goal is to… Read More

We probably still need some more numbers for this Very Important Twitter Chart

 I’m reviewing the transcript in my notes of Twitter’s second-quarter earnings call — which definitely did not go well, with the stock crashing more than 10% — and it seems like Twitter is beating the drum very hard on its daily active user growth. The company is regularly referring to double-digit growth in its DAU count year-over-year and that it is stressing DAUs as… Read More

Twitter’s user growth goes nowhere and the stock is collapsing

 The small nice-ish story Twitter had going for itself for the past few quarters was that, at the very least, its monthly active users were growing quarter-over-quarter. While MAUs might not be the right number to look at these days, for better or worse it’s one of the core metrics that Twitter is judged on for now — and that didn’t pan out when it reported its earnings today… Read More
