Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) is having a bad start to the week, with shares tanking today by as much as 10%. Sluggish user growth has dogged the investing narrative ever since the company went public, but Twitter has been able to prove in recent years that it doesn’t need user growth to build a sustainable, profitable business. The company delivered its first ever GAAP-profitable quarter just a few months ago, mostly driven by cost-cutting, followed by another GAAP-profitable quarter, driven by actual revenue growth.
Profitability notwithstanding, those user growth fears are back with a vengeance.
