Twitter’s IPO took place earlier today and, so far at least, it’s been a big success. The stock saw a nice 73 percent pop on the opening and while it hasn’t quite scaled the $70-80 heights that some analysts were predicting, its current levels of $45/$46 gives Twitter a market capitalisation of some $25 billion.
Not a bad day’s work. But it wasn’t always like this for Twitter. Way back when – circa 2006, if you’re asking – Twitter was a mere slip of a thing. A whisper of a thought of a flutter of a notion of an eyelash kiss of an idea. And then things started to change.
