Twitter (TWTR) slips to a loss in Q1 but beats estimates

The hiring ramp is slowed in light of the current environment, despite a plan to grow headcount by 20% or more in 2020

Microblogging platform Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) slipped to a loss in the first quarter of 2020 from a profit last year, due to the growing impact of COVID-19 on the global operating and economic environment and their effect on advertiser demand. The results exceeded analysts’ expectations.

Revenue rose by 3% reflecting a strong start to the quarter that was impacted by widespread economic disruption related to the COVID-19 in March. The company said the reduced expenses resulting from coronavirus disruption partially offset the revenue shortfall, which resulted in an operating loss.
