is not seeing a boost in business from the "Trump effect" despite the president's active tweeting, as advertisers steer clear of the platform so their brands don't get targeted, analyst Richard Kramer said on Thursday.
Shares of Twitter were tanking in premarket trading on Thursday after forward guidance missed expectations by a landslide and quarterly revenue was far below estimates. Earnings, however, did beat forecasts.

"This is not a platform that advertisers will want to, in advance, associate themselves with," Kramer said, noting that ad campaigns are put together long before they run.

"There are certain types of internet content that advertisers don't regard as brand-safe," Kramer said. "In the case of Twitter, with the abuse, with the vitriol that's on it, there's a lot of brands that just don't want to be associated with that sort of content."
