Twitter Posts $536 million Loss in Q3 Following Lawsuit Payout

US-based microblogging and social networking service Twitter reported a net loss of $536.7 million in the third quarter of 2021, according to its financial results released Tuesday. 

The results showed a steep decline from net income of $28.6 million in the same period of last year.

The firm’s revenue, on the other hand, rose 37% to $1.28 billion from $936 million during that period. Advertising revenue totalled $1.14 billion, an increase of 41% year-on-year, the statement said.

The company said it estimates total revenue to come between $1.5 billion to $1.6 billion in the fourth quarter.

It said the net loss includes a one-time litigation-related net charge of $809.5 million to settle a shareholder class action lawsuit.

Twitter announced on Sept. 20 that it will pay the amount to settle the lawsuit, which alleged that the firm misled investors about its user base growth and the number of users that interacted with the platform.

(…) Twitter’s stock price was down 1.1% in after-hours trading on the New York Stock Exchange.
