Twitter’s Growth Slows, Engagement Drops in Q4
Twitter’s fourth quarter numbers are in — and they’re not too impressive. The company’s growth has slowed, adding only ~9 million users since the fall quarter (for a total of 241 million).
According to re/code, that’s “a continued slowing of the company’s user growth curve, a problem the company has faced for some time.”
Engagement numbers have also suffered for Twitter, showing a direct decline of 11 billion from the fall quarter, leaving Twitter ‘Timeline views’ at 148 billion in Q4 2013.

But it wasn’t all bad. Here are some other big stats from Twitter’s Q4 report:
- more than 75% of Twitter’s ad revenue comes from mobile
- mobile monthy active users grew 37% year-over-year to 184 million
- advertising revenue increased 121% year-over-year
“This was a decent quarter for Twitter, but there’s still a long road ahead as a public company,” writes The Next Web. How will the company get user growth back on track?
