In a city where housing demand outweighs supply, the value of homes and land is sky-high, meaning even dilapidated single-family homes throughout the city are worth a pretty penny.

Twitter reports $1.01B in Q4 revenue with 152M monetizable daily active users

As Twitter continues to try to find the right balance between making its platform easier to use while also less prone to toxicity and abuse, the social media platform reported mixed earnings for Q4. Twitter posted $1.01 billion in revenue — notable because it is the first time its revenues have broken past the billion-dollar mark — due to a strong quarter in advertising sales. However, net income and EPS were both significant drops on the same period a year ago. Net income came in at $119 millio...

Africa Roundup: Trump’s Nigeria ban, Paga’s acquisition and raises — Fluterwave $35M, Sendy $20M

The first month of the new-year saw Africa enter the fray of U.S. politics. The Trump administration announced last week it would halt immigration from Nigeria — Africa’s most populous nation with the continent’s largest economy and leading tech sector. The presidential proclamation stops short of a full travel ban on the country of 200 million, but suspends immigrant visas for Nigerians seeking citizenship and permanent resident status in U.S. The latest regulations are said not to apply to non...

Nigeria is becoming Africa’s unofficial tech capital

Africa has one of the world’s fastest growing tech markets and Nigeria is becoming its unofficial capital. While the West African nation is commonly associated with negative cliches around corruption and terrorism — which persist as serious problems, and influenced the Trump administration’s recent restrictions on Nigerian immigration to the U.S. Even so, there’s more to the country than Boko Haram or fictitious princes with inheritances. Nigeria has become a magnet for VC, a hotbed for startup ...

The Platform Exceptionalism of YouTube

The major social media services are often described as fundamental platforms of the internet age. The companies that control these services use this argument to justify their astronomical valuations, and their critics use it to validate the need for regulatory intervention. As longtime readers know, I’m often skeptical of this digital deification. Services like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram aren’t really platforms: instead of providing core functionalities on which others can build ...
