Twitter to list its shares on NYSE

Posted: Updated:

Twitter is heading to the New York Stock Exchange.

The company announced the news in a filing with the securities and exchange commission today.

But many felt the NYSE had the upper hand, given the Nasdaq's massive fumbling of Facebook's initial public offering last year.

The New York Times reports Twitter has set a tentative date of November 15th to begin trading.
