Twitter listing filing

The world of finance has been abuzz with speculation over which stock exchange Twitter will choose to list its shares. That traditionally would likely have gone to the tech-focused Nasdaq exchange. But recent software glitches—including around Facebook’s troubled 2012 listing—have hurt the exchange’s reputation. In fact, reports suggest that the listing is more likely to end up on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Those talks still could be continuing.

Many thought this announcement could come in today’s public release of Twitter’s S-1 filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. Although the company has told the world it will use the stock symbol “TWTR,” evidently it will leave us in the dark, for now, as to where its shares will trade.
