Twitter and Skype? Just a day after Twitter went public I came across this early Strategy Deck from the original communications disrupter Skype. OTT before it was fashionable; it is interesting who they were gunning for. Equally who they aspired to be. Fast forward to 2013. 162bn minutes of calls/quarter. 300 million users but only $1.30 revenue per user per year. In other words, a rounding error on a cell phone bill. Flip it over and it is estimated to be costing the telecoms industry $100m per day, or $36.5bn per year. Back to Twitter. Totally pervasive or just an interesting similarity?
