Twitter Inc. Stock Rises on Q4 Earnings as US Stocks Plummet

Twitter hits milestone with first-ever profit

114,600,758 shares of the company were exchanged, compared to its average volume of 30,379,684. The stock had previously closed at $26.91. The social networking company reported $0.19 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, topping analysts' consensus estimates of $0.14 by $0.05.

Perhaps this is a corner turned for Twitter, we'll see.

The falling tally of users, closely watched by investors as a sign of future advertising sales potential, comes shortly after Twitter upped its efforts to diversify its sales beyond advertising, reporting $87m worth of revenue from data licensing and other avenues, up 10% from a year earlier, while advertising revenue crept ahead 1% to $644m. During the same quarter in the previous year, the business posted $0.11 EPS.
