Twitter posts meagre UK profit

Twitter’s UK operation has posted a miserly £16.5k profit in its first published accounts.

The figure offers little sign of how the social platform is performing globally but it is believed the company took $288m in worldwide ad revenues last year.

Twitter has been selling promoted tweets to clients including Sky, BT and Eurostar, and the company continues to target the UK as a growing market.
