Twitter headquarters in San Francisco, California on November 2016.
Twitter reported its first quarterly earnings on Thursday, which triggered the action of the social network that for years has been lagging behind rivals.
The San Francisco-based company said it made $ 91 million in profits in the fourth quarter, its first positive balance since it went public in 2013.
President Jack Dorsey greeted „a good end to the year.“
Revenues increased 2% compared to the same period of the previous year to 732 million dollars -better than expected-, and the number of monthly active users had a modest increase to 330 million.
The actions of Twitter rose 15% in the exchanges prior to the opening of the market after the news.
Profitability marks a milestone for Twitter, which has consistently lost money since it became public. That performance provoked speculation about the need to sell the company to survive.
