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 positive net income cash flow of $161.11M till this quarter of 2018 Q2. This report is very useful in measuring the short term viability of a company. Twitter had an inflow of $563.81M from operating activities, $1.02B inflow due to financing activities, and $-672.52M outflow due to investing activities till 2018 Q2.
