Twitter loses 24% market value after results leaked

Twitter's share price fell by almost a quarter last night, after leaked figures showed its quarterly revenue had failed to meet investors' expectations.

The tech giant reported weaker than expected demand for its new advertising system, while user growth was slow in April, leading to a drop in value of up to 24%.

Wall Street had expected revenue of around $2.3bn (£1.5bn) in 2015, but estimates have now been reduced to around £2.2bn (£1.3bn).

Meanwhile, Twitter's chief executive Dick Costolo has suggested that users might begin to see "curated" feeds of noteworthy tweets. Rather than the unfiltered chronological stream of updates Twitter users see at the moment, in future they might end up with a Facebook-style algorithm, which picks and chooses what its users see.
