Dedicated servers are just pain in the rear - it's expensive to maintain , you have to pay for datacenter rental, and it's the old tech anyway. That was a way to get customers before 'cloud' came. Going forward , margins should improve and extra cash is good thing too. It should add about 1 1/2 cents to earnings this quarter.
Making company leaner and more efficient is good overall and it would make it more attractive to potential buyers. Especially those that already have their own datacenters (e.g. CenturyLink or Amazon)
Not moving towards a buyout, rather removing business segments that don't mesh with the principal product line. This frees them from dedicating resources to a business they didn't specialize in. They will concentrate on expanding their capacity and pipeline in the telephony industry.
The company is only beginning to grow. You get to watch the evolution of an industry segment. We are very far away from the "maturity" stage of this business. So enjoy your profitable ride.
rather than central data center sending the tweet. end to end, maybe distribute tweet to the local geographic cloud server, which then sends out a local tweet...rather than from Omaha to china x 200 people. send one to china and then depending on network of cloud servers density. on to the addresses more locally. helpful if countries adopt a service fee on top of usual cost. ...hey, it all adds up. wag.
