The company is therefore in one year period $ 2,700,000,000 (two billion euros) increased in value. Plans for an IPO arenot been made yet.

The number of small web companies with one billion valuation is increasing rapidly. Look at Facebook and LinkedIn. Or Groupon according ssectorkenners a bid of 5 billion U.S. dollars from Google would have received. Google would also previously expressed interest in Twitter.

Twitter has over 350 employees. Worldwide there are 175 million users but the company has all the hard time to translate that into sales and profits. Although Twitter still has a loss in the end.

This makes the valuation of Twitter more remarkable. In the previous financing round in the autumn of 2009 the company was ‘only’ $ 1,000,000,000 (0.75 million) worth. According Twitter implies capital round today a valuation of 2.8 billion euros.
