The company attributes the strong financial results - $732 million revenue in quarter four - to an expanding character limit - now 280 characters, rather than the previous 140. The business's revenue for the quarter was up 2.0% compared to the same quarter last year. equities analysts forecast that Twitter Inc will post 0.02 EPS for the current year.

(TWTR)'s distance from 200 day simple moving average is 30.59 percent, its distance from 50 day simple moving average is 7.6 percent, while its distance from 20 day simple moving average is 3.16 percent. Wall Street expected revenue of $687 million and EPS of 14 cents. Monthly active users is the metric that investors watch to determine the company's health.

Twitter also said in a shareholder letter it had stepped up efforts to reduce spam and automated and fake accounts.

Jack Dorsey said AI would play a key part in this because it would allow his team to move a "whole lot faster" in 2018 and be "smarter" about how it introduces tweets, events and accounts to people.

This is good news for people who don't want Twitter to go away-which is most of it users, probably, even the ones who complain the most.
