The initial public offer (IPO) filing was revealed, on Twitter itself on the company’s official account. Twitter’s IPO is touted to be the most galvanic and the most anticipated initial public offerings in tech history.

In July, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo at a conference compared the constant questioning about an IPO to sports: he compared himself to a football player, who is trying to catch a pass, “while people are yelling at him from the sidelines asking him, ‘What are you doing after the game?

If buzz is to be believed, then it is rumored that Twitter was forced to file for an IPO because, like Facebook, it had enough private investors and hence strict regulations are required. According to The Jobs Act, 2012, a company in the US requires to go public if it has more than 2,000 private investors.

Moreover, the surreptitious IPO filing by Twitter, also indicates that that it has under $1bn revenues. As, under the clauses of the Jobs Act, only companies with revenue under $1bn in value may file secretly, larger companies have to file public documents.

Among the social networking sites, Twitter is the last in to go public. Other big media companies, including Facebook, and Linkedin already commanded billions of dollars in the public markets. Linkedin’s worth is $32 bn in stock while Facebook’s market value is $108 bn.
