Twitter is losing American users, according to its monthly active user numbers, reports The Washington Post, which added that “Twitter reported that it had an average of 68 million monthly active users in the United States this past quarter, down from 70 million in the previous quarter.
“Overall, Twitter just isn’t growing as much as investors would like to see. That’s the main takeaway from the social network’s latest quarterly earnings report Thursday, in which the company reported the same number of users worldwide as it had three months ago.
“Twitter executives, including chief executive Jack Dorsey and chief financial officer Anthony Noto, brushed off concern about user growth, saying that the firm is most interested in its number of daily active users — which it believes offers a more detailed picture of how people use its site. In daily active users, Twitter grew 9 percent in the United States, Noto said, adding that the company continues to see “stable growth rates.””
