Twitter's Q2 Revenue Likely To Decline, Though MAUs Might Improve

Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own.

In the upcoming Q2 results, we expect Twitter’s management to provide more color on the company’s strategy to tide over the aforementioned issues. Specifically, we expect the company to announce more measures to monetize its platform. We also expect management to shed light on its revenue expectations from live streaming and Periscope going forward. However, we expect that monthly active users (MAUs) for the company will grow as it improves user engagement through live streaming content.

We expect Q2 2017 revenue to be between $530 -$560 million, against $548 million reported in the prior year quarter. Twitter expects adjusted EBITDA to range between $95 – $115 million, significantly lower than its Q2 2016 figure of $175 million.
