It’s time for Twitter to get real
One million per day… is the amount of Twitter accounts suspended in May and June of this year alone. That equates to 70 million total accounts. After the report of the suspensions broke Twitter stock dropped as much as 9%.
Twitter can explain… so they did, via Ned Segal the company’s CFO, who clarified that most of these accounts were not active within the last thirty days. Since most of these accounts weren’t active they were not included in the “oh so” important monthly active users metric.
Seventy-million and not a peep… from Twitter users, because they were mostly fake accounts – so please, calm down. The suspended accounts have no impact on the company’s user growth, which is much of what Wall Street focuses on. With this information, hopefully, your concerns have been quelled, and you can breathe a sigh of relief for Twitter…
