Twitter Needs India Expansion More than Former COO


The resignation of Twitter's COO is a long term positive for the social media giant because it will shake the company up and focus it on retaining US users and expanding into the all-important markets of India and Southeast Asia, says Mikolaj Piskorski, author of "A Social Strategy". He also says Facebook has a huge opportunity in India even as it hits its stride in the US. Staying in Asia, Piskorski says LinkedIn is undervalued and has huge potential in China. Finally, he says Yelp's review business has bigger barriers to entry than many people realize, although its sales force is too costly.
