Web Watch: Twitter goes public for trading

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Twitter is now open for public trading.

TWTR is joining the big board at the New York Stock Exchange at $26 a share.

This day has been talked about for the last several months. Twitter is a much anticipated IPO after the Facebook launch went terribly wrong. Investors are split over whether to buy the stock. About 1/3 will say it is a good buy, but nearly half say it is no good.

When Facebook launched the world was watching and about half of Americans were ready to buy in. But technical glitches left the stock in a landslide for about 6 months until the company could prove to Wall Street it could turn a profit. This is something Twitter has yet to do, which is why so many investors are so skeptical. The little blue bird has always stood in big brother Facebook's shadow, but the company has also learned from its mistakes.
