Twitter IPO

Twitter went public last Thursday on the New York Stock Exchange yesterday under the ticker TWTR. But it wasn’t the CEO or top execs ringing the ceremonial opening bell. Instead, Twitter invited three influential Tweeters: Actor Patrick Stewart, elementary school student and anti-slavery activist Vivienne Harr and Boston Police Department public information chief Cheryl Fiandaca to ring the bell.
The 3 were chosen because they used Twitter to change lives, raise awareness and keeping people safe.
Twitter priced its IPO shares At $26, giving the company a market capitalization of $14.4 billion.
On a side note, today is my 7th anniversary on Twitter. Yes, I joined Twitter on 11 November 2006, just eight months after Twitter started. Didn’t expect Twitter to become so big back then. If you ask me, Twitter is still my favorite social networking site.
