Twitter Inc had a net loss of 511 million dollars in its first quarterly report since its initial public stock offering, the San Francisco-based company said 05 February 2014, falling further in the red than forecast. Total losses for 2013 were 645 million dollars compared to 79 million dollars in 2012, according to the fourth-quarter report. The social-media company went public on November 6, selling shares to raise at least 1.8 billion dollars to fuel continued expansion. The pace of user growth slowed, with 241 million monthly users, up 30 per cent from 185 million monthly users a year earlier. The rate of growth was 39 per cent in the previous period. Revenue more than doubled to 243 million dollars in the fourth quarter, up 116 per cent from the year-ago period. EPA/Joerg Carstensen

Twitter shares nosedived April 26, 2016 after a quarterly update showed little change in its user base and the messaging platform delivered weaker-than-expected revenue growth. The company posted a loss for the first quarter of 2016 of $80 million, compared with a loss of $162 million in the same period a year ago. Revenues meanwhile jumped 36 percent year-over-year to $595 million.  / AFP PHOTO / LEON NEAL
