Twitter Beats Earnings, But Sees Little to Now Growth Where It Matters

Twitter’s user base is either growing a lot, a little, or not at all, depending on who you ask. That’s one of the take-aways from the company’s Q2 earnings, which Twitter released Tuesday to investors with muted expectations. Twitter had 316 million monthly active users during Q2, which is 8 million more than in Q1, and up 45 million from the 271 million it had a year ago — which sounds good, considering that investors had grudgingly prepared themselves for 5 million or fewer new active users.
