Twitter released its S-1 this afternoon, disclosing revenues of nearly $317 million last year and a net loss of roughly $80 million in 2012, down from $128.3 million in 2011. If all goes according to plan, the company will raise roughly $1 billion with its IPO.
Twitter will likely trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “TWTR.”

- In excess of 65 percent of Twitter’s ad revenue is coming from mobile
- Since inception in 2006, there have been over 300 billion Tweets
