American Twitter, which owns the microblogging network of the same name, said that the deleting of fake accounts led to a decrease in the number of active users at a record pace in the entire history of the company. The figure in the third quarter fell by 9 million from the previous quarter to 326 million. However, this situation did not prevent the company from gaining a profit of $789 million during the earnings period against a loss of $21 million recorded in the same quarter of 2017. The adjusted earnings of 21 cents per share also significantly exceeded analysts ’forecast of 14 cents per share. On Thursday, Twitter’s stock price rose 13%.
