Future of TWTR?

After reading some replies to iBankedUp's recent post, I'm curious... What do you think the future of Twitter is?

Strategic buyout? (and who?)
Sponsor buyout?
Management turns it around?
Bankruptcy?
Festers at a low price until the end of time?

I have always seen Facebook as a good strategic buyer to be honest, even though FB said it wasn't interested when alll those buyout rumors were swirling a few months ago. FB is very good at monetizing platforms, which TWTR can't seem to do. I see the problem being management's inability to squeeze money out of their product rather than the product itself.

What do you all, mostly older and wiser, think?

I can see Google before Facebook.

Sometimes common sense is better than technical analysis. Common sense is that the most powerful (arguably) man in the world chooses Twitter as his communication medium of choice. Twitter is its own worst enemy and needs to be the marketplace of ideas that it has naturally become, not some policed safe-haven for liberals and SJWs.

@itsanumbersgame I agree with your sentiment, but that still doesn't solve the $$$ issue
How do you think Google would be able to monetize the platform?

Thoughts on this now? Yesterday they reported record quarterly revenue and an increase in daily active users, but shares still fell 10%. Amazing that it can't turn itself around...

Has anyone actually looked into how GDPR affected Facebooks performance in the EU?

Don't have much insight into the business case for it, but as a platform it is outrageously toxic and is the easiest social media to give up by far. Can't be a good sign.
