Twitter shares have fallen 8% in the last three months and 40% year-to-date, with investors wary that the social network’s user base isn’t growing fast enough. Last quarter, Twitter reported 255 million monthly active users, well below rival Facebook’s (FB) 1.3 billion during the same period.
User engagement has slipped: in the first quarter, Twitter saw 157 billion timeline views, down from 158 billion in the third quarter of 2013 despite adding 23 million users to the platform. The company has tried to convince investors that it still has strong growth prospects, notably by engaging users and advertisers during this year’s FIFA World Cup, during which the company set several new tweet records.
