Twitter Prices its IPO: Live from the NYSE

The big moment has finally arrived: Twitter is expected to price its initial public offering tonight after the bell tonight. Your boy will be live from New York Stock Exchange from 3pm on CNBC’s Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo and Bill Griffeth for live coverage and all the breaking news.

My Twitter born-on date was March 2nd, 2009 – the week the market bottomed and the end of the bear market. Correlation? Causation? LOL 🙂 And I just realized that sometime over the weekend I passed 60,000 followers. Pretty cool, I’m never not blown away by it all.

Find your Twitter born-on date here, btw:

In the early days, Twitter was really just another broadcast tool for links to my blog. Then I started making friends and contacts from around the limited investor and trader community that had sprouted up. Then I started interacting with some of my favorite financial reporters and by the end of 2009, the crew had come together. Back in the day it was me, Joe Weisenthal, Heidi Moore, Kelly Evans, Epicurean Dealmaker, Felix Salmon, Phil Pearlman, Justin Paterno (zerobeta), Howard Lindzon, Tyler (Zero Hedge), Stacy-Marie Ishmael, Jordan Terry (aka The Analyst), Dan Primack, Katie Rosman, Frank Zorilla (Zor Trades), John Carney, Dasan, Joe Donahue (Upside Trader), Brian Shannon, Tim Connolly (Sconset Capital), Adam Warner, Tadas Viskanta (cloaked as Abnormal Returns), Leigh Drogen and a bunch of others. We were the Financial Twitter OGs  – back before anyone else noticed or cared that what we were doing even existed.

“What do you mean ‘Twitter’?” was what my friends on The Street kept asking. “What does that have to do with anything?”

But my how things have changed – for the better!

Now just about everyone is on Twitter, under a real name or an alias. Buffett’s on, Icahn’s on, Bloomberg is curating us, the world is paying attention to the stuff we chatter about. It’s so cool to have connected with so many of you – traders, investors, reporters, bankers and analysts  – over the years, an opportunity that could never have arisen if not for blue bird.

Anyway, it’s been a long road toward an IPO for the revolutionary social messaging service, but things really kicked into high gear once Facebook’s stock price had regained its IPO level, see: There Are No Coincidences in Banking. And now here we are…

So tune in as we get the offering price tonight and whatever other tidbits should happen to surface, see you there!
