Another day, another surge in Twitter’s share price. With the exception of industry behemoth Comcast, Twitter’s market value is now higher than that of every cable company in the US. It also outdoes the third and fourth biggest wireless carriers, Sprint and T-Mobile, which might be about to unite.

It won’t take much more to lift Twitter’s market value above the Marissa Mayer-led Yahoo, despite the fact that, at last count,  it had fewer monthly active users than Yahoo Mail.
