Twitter Reports Cap Bad Week In Social Media

KELO Twitter

Twitter is nosediving after it said monthly users declined in the second quarter and could fall further over the next few months.
    
The stock is down 19.1 percent in heavy trading Friday afternoon, mirroring a 19 percent plunge in Facebook Thursday.
    
Twitter and Facebook are trying to reduce the amount of abuse and hate speech on their platforms, but that’s affecting their growth, one of the things investors value the most.
    
Twitter has doubled in value over the past year as it became profitable for the first time and investors applauded its live video efforts.
    
Other big technology companies also sank Friday. Intel dropped 8.5 percent and Microsoft gave up 2.8 percent.
    
The tech-heavy Nasdaq composite is headed for its worst loss in a month.
