Shares of Twitter Inc TWTR 15.27% were trading lower by 15 percent Wednesday in reaction to the company's disappointing second quarter results.

Dorsey said Twitter has made some "pretty big changes" over the past six months, including Moments and Periscope. He added that a redesigned timeline has been a change that the company has been planning to do for quite some time and it's now showing some "pretty significant" and "positive" signs, including more retweets.

Moving on to Twitter's recent deal with the National Football League, Dorsey didn't acknowledge what impact is expected, but did say it serves as a sign of the company's full potential.

"The NFL deal is one such example where we have people Tweeting about games all the time and the simple question is what if the game was actually on the same screen as the Tweets," he said. "It's not just about football, it's not just about sports, we can do this around live venues, around elections, debates."
