Twitter faced tough questions before its IPO

Twitter Inc., leading up to its Nov. 6 initial public offering, faced questions from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission about slowing user growth and whether people were losing interest in viewing ads -- the company’s main source of revenue.

The SEC called for details on how the microblogging website planned to deliver on its promises of fast growth, according to filings released today. Though Twitter’s revenue had more than doubled over the past year, increases in users had slowed and there was no clear path to making a profit.
