Twitter IPO vs. Facebook

How "Modest" Twitter Stacks Up to Tech's Biggest IPOs

This week, Twitter announced it will list its shares between $17 to $20, for a valuation of about $11 billion in the social media giant's November IPO. That's no chump change, but in Silicon Valley where the tech industry is booming, the not-yet profitable Twitter's valuation is being called modest compared to its digital competitors. But how does the micromessaging company measure up against other tech leaders' early Wall Street showings? Find out below.

At the time of its May 18, 2012, initial public offering on the NASDAQ, the social network has raised $16 billion, making it among the world's largest stock offerings.

Google

Google's IPO on Aug. 18, 2004, brought in $1.67 billion.

Zynga

Zynga's Dec. 15, 2011, IPO raised $1 billion.

Groupon

Orbitz

Amazon
