As of the date of this poll Twitter is slated to IPO with a valuation of $17.4 billion. Twitter has had a significant global impact allowing one-to-many and many-to-one instant broadcast messaging of text and recently, images. It has revolutionized the transmission of real-time events from the Arab Spring to celebrity name-calling.
But the revenue stream is small, dividends seem a distant prospect.

Currently Bitcoin, recapturing its all-time high, has a monetary base of nearly $3 billion. All Bitcoiners appreciate the risks and reality of it right now and yet its world-changing potential. Many use Twitter as well.

It's simple. Today the market values Twitter 5.8x more than Bitcoin. But in 5 years which will be bigger, better, more important, and by how much?  

Hoping for a useful histogram to result...

Indeed. But the market has to take all information about any enterprise and come up with a price. They are both topical right now. Might not prove anything, but might also prove interesting to get expectations.
