The social media platform saw a 5th quarter in which they made a profit. Total company revenue for quarter 4 was $909 Million, beating analyst expectation. In ad sales, the company saw $749 Million.
The share price dropped with the news that active users dropped to 321 million, down from 326 Million the previous quarter. The number of monthly users was below the expected 324 million. However, the daily active users rose 9 percent to 124 million.
Twitter has come under fire as of late for their open and liberal policy on account bans. The platform as banned conservative commentators with or without reason while also not banning some on the left.
