Twitter plans to release four new metrics in its second quarter to give investors a better idea of its media presence. Despite growing revenue current metrics backfired for the company with the social media giants slow active user growth. Twitter is looking for numbers outside of its active users to other social networking sites, news websites and TV channels that embed Tweets.
