The more than 14 percent drop in share value at the opening bell comes one day after Facebook lost 19 percent of its value – its worst trading day since Facebook went public in 2012 .Twitter, like other social media platforms, says it's putting its platform over user growth.Twitter had 335 million monthly users in the quarter, below the 339 million Wall Street was expecting, and down slightly from 336 million in the first quarter.While Twitter maintains that most of these accounts were dormant and thus not counted in the monthly user figure, the company also warned that its cleanup efforts could affect its counted user base – without giving specific numbers.
