Twitter Inc (TWTR) settled $809.5 million in a securities class action lawsuit accusing it of deceiving investors about user engagement in 2015.
The initial complaint in this action was filed on September 16, 2016. It alleged that Twitter and its Leaders knowingly concealed and made false statements about the Company’s key operating metrics to artificially inflate the price of $TWTR and that when the Company disclosed the facts, Twitter’s stock price dropped.
The class action claimed Twitter misled investors about the following metrics:
- monthly active users;
- the total number of users on its platform;
- the timeline views;
- and how frequently users interacted with the platform.
After 5-year court proceedings, Twitter agreed to settle with investors to avoid further litigation.
