Twitter Valuation

Just read this article about Twitter CEO changing places….

Which got me thinking about how much Twitter might be worth.

Accurate numbers seem hard to find but best estimates are
Number of Twitter Users (TwitDir) : 3,183,544
Daily Twitter messages (Twiturly) : 200,000 - 250,000

What I don’t understand is how they took $15m in investment with zero revenue model. Even if they made 1c per message that’s under 1m dollars in revenue a year, or 15 x earnings just on the last investment alone forget about their total valuation.

Can someone point out to me their way of valuing this company based on the number of interactions per day.
