It appears that investors are placing more trust on Facebook stocks with the beginning of Q2 2019, even though Twitter easily outperformed Facebook in 2018. As Twitter is slowing down, Facebook is presently surging in oppose to its smaller rival, while Twitter is also reporting issues with declining number of monthly active users (MAU), deciding that the company will no longer be reporting MAUs.
Perhaps this is one of the reasons why Twitter is currently falling out of grace in the eyes of investors. Still, Twitter will be reporting monetizable daily active users, presenting mDAU as a more important metric.
