Despite overcoming cautious Wall Street financial estimates, Twitter's global user growth - which has been a jitter-inducing subject for investors for years - remained muted. Its 330 million users doesn't put it in Facebook's league, but that total is nothing to sniff at. Toronto Dominion Bank grew its stake in shares of Twitter by 21.3% during the 2nd quarter. Key Square Capital Management LLC now owns 3,367,882 shares of the social networking company's stock valued at $80,863,000 after acquiring an additional 2,157,882 shares in the last quarter.

Twitter's previous inability to turn a profit had confounded investors given the company's ubiquitous presence in the media and popularity among celebrities, athletes and politicians such as US President Donald Trump.
