Twitter on Monday pulled its first quarter guidance due to the growing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“While the near-term financial impact of this pandemic is rapidly evolving and difficult to measure, based on current visibility, the company expects Q1 revenue to be down slightly on a year-over-year basis,” the company said in a press release. “Twitter also expects to incur a GAAP operating loss, as reduced expenses resulting from COVID-19 disruption are unlikely to fully offset the revenue impact of the pandemic in Q1.”

Twitter said it will provide an update on its first quarter 2020 earnings call on April 30.
