Twitter loses around $8.7 billion dollars in market capitalization in one day

Twitter had a difficult earnings day yesterday, reporting strong financial results but weak user growth. Some investors immediately dumped their stock. The company lost nearly $16 per share today following the news, or around $8.7 billion dollars in market capitalization.

The company reported a loss of $3.41 in earnings per share. For the full year, Twitter earned $665 million in revenue, an increase of 100% over last year.
