For analyzing any company like Twitter from an investment perspective, its important to check the cash flow statement. While its important to look at the Twitter debt position, the cash flow statement becomes equally important because public companies use accrual accounting. For example, if a company sells a product which gets counted as Twitter revenue but does not convert to cash because it does not receive payment in the same quarter, it affects the cash position for that period. This statement can tell if a company is running out of money while still being profitable and is useful in Twitter stock analysis. Twitter had a negative net income cash flow of $-108.06M for the latest 2017. This report is very useful in measuring the short term viability of a company. Twitter had an inflow of $831.2M from operating activities, $-78.37M spend due to financing activities, and $-112.93M outflow due to investing activities for 2017.
