After Microsoft signed a deal to test Windows 10 on Xiaomi devices in 2015 and then Xiaomi bought a trove of patents to help run other Microsoft services on its devices in 2016, today the two companies announced another chapter in its collaboration.
The San Francisco-based company, which started as a free service to share and store photos, music and other large files, competes with much larger technology firms such as Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) Google, Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) and Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) as well as cloud-storage rival Box Inc (BOX.N).
Twitter’s (TWTR) 4Q17 marked a strong finish to 2017, with earnings that not only grew from the same period one year ago but also smashed consensus estimates. Twitter’s top-line growth actually accelerated from 1.0% YoY in 4Q16, and its revenues fell 4.0% YoY in 3Q17. Wall Street was expecting Twitter to report $686.1 million in revenues for 4Q17.
For the first time since going public in 2015, Twitter (TWTR) was able to turn a net profit on a GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) basis in 4Q17, marking a significant milestone for the company and lifting investors’ hope for a better future. The profit was a much-needed disruption of Twitter’s losing streak that characterized recent past quarterly reports amid weakness in its core advertising business. Twitter posted a net profit of $91 million in 4Q17, translating to EPS (earnings per share) of $0.12.

Search engines such as Alphabet’s (GOOGL) Google and Microsoft’s (MSFT) Bing accounted for just 15% of online product searches in 2017, unchanged from 2016.
