Twitter Soars 16 Percent on Strong User Growth, Smaller Losses

Twitter Inc (TWTR) Shares Surge As Earnings Beat, User Growth Accelerates

And Twitter said daily active users - a metric for which it has declined to offer details - rose 14 percent from past year.

To the social media icon's credit, this admission wasn't the result of an investigative journalist poking their nose into the company's operations but an acknowledgment in its latest quarterly earnings report, released today.

This revelation came after the company its net loss narrowed in the third quarter and its number of users rose 14 per cent.

Amazon reportedly shutting down Amazon Wine business
Amazon Business has been the company's push to enter into the B2B sales segment after shuttering its wholesale site Amazon Supply. He also assured customers that the company would keep innovating to ensure easier business purchasing.

This new discovery means Twitter's previously reported lack of growth was even more bleak that we thought. In a letter, written to its shareholders, Twitter wrote that since the end of the year 2014, it had been counting users of apps that used Digits, Twitter's now defunct developer toolkit which was launched in October 2014, in its counting of monthly users. The company has seen monthly active user figures increase, arresting the slide that it had to report across the summer.

Despite the drop in users, Twitter stock jumped as much as 11% in premarket trading Thursday after the company beat expectations on revenue and gave higher-than-expected guidance for the fourth quarter.

Wall Street rejoiced at Twitter's performance-company stock was up almost 15 percent in morning trading.

Cuomo signs bill banning use of e-cigarettes indoors
The American Cancer Society thanked Cuomo for taking a step to protect the health of all New Yorkers. He added that most of his customers use it as a way to quit tobacco cigarettes.

The number of monthly active users, though, actually grew four percent compared to the third quarter of 2016 to 330 million. The third-party app that led to the monthly user miscalculation, Digits, allowed Twitter users to log into other online services using their Twitter credentials.

"We're pleased with the improvements made toward a return to revenue growth this quarter", Twitter's CFO Ned Segal said in a statement. The fact that the platform is President Trump's favored communications tool is also likely to have raised Twitter's profile among potential users.

Twitter said the error in past user estimates was caused when it wrongly counted people who logged into applications associated with the firm's Fabric software platform.

Nintendo Switch Update 4.0.0 Adds GameCube Controller Support
GameXplain showcases the GameCube controllers being used for the brand new Fire Emblem: Warriors on the Nintendo Switch . Presumably this won't work in handheld mode, because there's no wireless connectivity between the Switch and its dock.

On a call with investors, CEO Jack Dorsey reiterated that Twitter is intently focused on improving safety for users.
