Twitter (TWTR, $38.32) posts wider-than-expected Q2 loss, as ad revenue hurts even amid surging users

Twitter posted a wider-than-expected second-quarter loss.

The social networking behemoth’s  adjusted loss in the quarter was 16 cents a share – a result worse than the breakeven per share that analysts polled by FactSet had been expecting.  

Revenue of $683.4 million fell from the year-ago quarter’s $841.4 million, and was also below  analysts’ forecasts of $701.6 million.

The company’s ad revenue suffered a -23% decline year-over-year. This reflects  the economic impact of the covid-19 pandemic as well as  brands' slowing spend in response to U.S civil unrest (according to Twitter’s statement).

Nevertheless, Twitter  said its daily users surged +34% year-over-year to 186 million in the second quarter- which marks the second straight quarter of gains on its platform and its largest year-over-year increase since first reporting the metric in 2016.
