Twitter surprises in the third quarter

October 26, 2017 - 7:43 am

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Twitter is reporting a loss of $21.1 million in its third quarter, but turned in a better-than-expected profit when one-time charges and benefits are removed.

Shares of Twitter Inc. soared almost 9 percent before the opening bell Thursday.

The San Francisco company had a loss of 3 cents, but a gain of 10 cents if those non-re-occurring events are removed. That's 2 cents better than industry analysts had predicted, according to a survey by Zacks Investment Research.

Revenue was revenue of $589.6 million in the period, in line with expectations.
