How it is implemented is also relatively easy to understand. In addition, we continue to work to proactively identify and resolve some malicious behaviors, which reduces spam or suspicious behavior reporting by 18%. In addition, we continue to use machine learning to provide more. The more relevant content promoted the increase in daily usage of Twitter. The average number of active monetizable users (mDAU) in the second quarter increased by 14% year-on-year.”

On a fixed exchange rate basis, revenue increased by 20% year-on-year. The most important advertising products, and high-performance advertising, will help advertisers launch new content and connect with what is happening on Twitter.”
