Twitter shares hit all-time low
Twitter’s share price fell 18 per cent to an all-time low of 31.85 dollars at the close trading on Tuesday in New York, after insiders were able to sell stock for the first time since the social media company’s initial public offering in November.
Chief executive Dick Costolo and co-founders Jack Dorsey and Evan Williams had promised to not immediately sell after the 180-day lockup, according to a statement by the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
Still, Twitter shares experienced a steep sell off on higher-than-usual volume.
Twitter’s lockup expired just a week after shares tumbled after the company posted a net loss of 132 million dollars for the first quarter, despite a 119 per cent increase in sales.
