Twitter’s Global Expansion Boosts Revenue as It Brings Censorship Hurdles

Ad revenue at Twitter is set to rise to $540 million in 2014 from $139.5 million in 2011, according to New York-based research firm EMarketer Inc. Increasing popularity overseas will decrease the site’s reliance on U.S. advertisers. The percentage of dollars coming from the U.S. will fall to 83 percent in 2014 from about 90 percent this year, EMarketer said.
