The breakthrough quarter for Twitter was back in Q2 2015 when the company’s global revenue crossed the $500-million milestone for the very first time. The company posted a whopping $502.38 million in revenue, with a year-over-year increase of 60.9%.
Surprisingly, in Q1 2017, the quarterly revenue of Twitter declined to 548.25 million, from $594.5 million in Q1 2016. That represented a notable 7.78% YoY decline, primarily due to the 11% YoY decline in the company’s advertising services revenue. This also represented a huge 23.6% QoQ decline from Q4 2016 when the total quarterly revenue hit a record 717.21 million.
