Trump tweets don't help: 1st Twitter revenue drop since IPO

In the last quarter, Twitter's daily active user base grew by 11 percent, as well as its losses shrunk by about 23 percent to just $62 million.

The microblogging service said average monthly active users increased 6% to 328m in the first quarter from a year earlier.

After several quarters of showing flat or anemic growth, Twitter said that it added 9 million new monthly average users in the latest quarter, the largest increase since 2015.
