Despite a 4 per cent increase in monthly active users over the previous year, the company saw no increase in the last three months, with the numbers described as "flat".
In its report card for the three months ended 31 October, Twitter hinted that it may finally turn a profit, something that its previous inability to do so confused investors, considering the platform's adoption by a multitude of celebrities and politicians. The adjusted fourth quarter profit and revenue came in above street targets.
The company had its first profitable quarter ever in Q4, reporting profits of $91 million on $732 million in revenue, a jump of 2 percent over past year. Average daily active users (DAU) rose 12 percent year-over-year.
But for every silver lining, there's a grey cloud, and Twitter can't rely upon rosy user numbers to bolster the good mood. In Q4 2017, the number of times people engaged with ads increased by 75 percent year over year, but the average amount of money advertisers paid per engagement decreased by 42 percent year over year. Twitter's total revenue increased by 2 percent year over year to $731.6 million in Q4, and its advertising revenue inched up by 1 percent year over year to $644.3 million. It reported adjusted earnings of 19 cents, topping the consensus estimate of 14 cents. During the rest of 2017, revenues had declined by 4 to 8 percent year over year.
This is the first time that Twitter reported year-over-year revenue growth in the last four quarters. Twitter still refuses to disclose the its daily active users (DAU), so it's hard to interpret the full significance of that daily audience growth.
Twitter said that its usage was affected by changes that Apple made to its Safari browser.
