Twitter Files for an IPO
Just days after installing a triumphal bird ornament atop its lavish headquarters at 1355 Market St., Twitter made even bigger news: The estimated $15 billion IPO is upon us.
Or rather, it's coming imminently. Today Twitter announced -- via Twitter, of course -- that it submitted an S-1 to the SEC and plans to go public ASAP.
We've confidentially submitted an S-1 to the SEC for a planned IPO. This Tweet does not constitute an offer of any securities for sale.— Twitter (@twitter) September 12, 2013
