Twitter has said the current pandemic is set to hit financial performance in the first quarter of 2020 and the company has withdrawn its revenue and operating income guidance as well as its outlook for expenses.

The company expects Q1 revenue to be “down slightly” on a year-over-year basis. It had earlier provided Q1 guidance of revenue between $825 million and $885 million.

The micro-blogging platform, however, reported a gain of 12 million daily users as more people joined the platform during the COVID-19 crisis.

“Global conversation about COVID-19 as well as ongoing product improvements are driving strength in total monetizable DAU (mDAU), with quarter-to-date average total mDAU reaching approximately 164 million, up 23 per cent from 134 million in Q1 2019 and up 8 per cent from 152 million in Q4 2019,” Twitter said in a statement.

“We’ll continue to navigate this environment focusing on supporting our employees, customers, and partners, while strengthening our service for everyone around the world and adjusting to a new operating and economic environment”.

"So my decision to say yes to the film came from the director's vision."

Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor was never really keen on exploring horror comedy but the story of 'Bhoot Police' pushed him to try his hand at the genre. The actor said, "It's not a genre that I was looking for, script-wise. When I heard it, when I read it, what worked for me was the camaraderie between the brothers, the friction and the banter between them. So I quite liked the friction, the brotherhood and at the same time the love-hate relationship and the witty tone."
