Twitter revenue falls 19% in Q2 2020, monetizable users rise 34%

Twitter has reported sturdy person progress for Q2 2020, although income — which was already broadly anticipated to be down — fell beneath analysts’ expectation.

The social networking big announced its most up-to-date monetary and person metrics this morning, revealing revenues of $686 million — a  year-on-year (YoY) lower of 19% on the $841 million reported final yr, and a quarter-on-quarter (QoQ) lower of round 15% on the $808 million it introduced for Q1 2020. The consensus income estimate had been pegged at round $708 million.

On the flip aspect, Twitter reported 186 million “monetizable daily active users,” (mDAU) up 34% on the 139 million it reported for a similar interval final yr, and 12% on the 166 million for the earlier quarter. Twitter stopped reporting month-to-month energetic customers (MAU) final July, selecting as a substitute to focus squarely on mDAUs, a wholly new metric it defines as people who log in via twitter.com or any of the cell apps which can be in a position to present commercials — so this excludes these how don’t log in, or those that use TweetDeck and different third-party purchasers.
