Social media giant Twitter made public its S-1 documents with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) late Thursday, revealing details about the company to help the government review its bid to transition from a privately- owned to publicly-traded company.
The filing reveals Twitter had revenues of $253.6 million for the first six months of 2013 but that it lost $69.3 million during the period. The company lost money last year also, reporting a net loss of $79 million. The tech company plans to use the ticker symbol "TWTR," but didn't specify what stock exchange it would be available on.
The tech titan proved its influence by announcing that it had filed S-1 papers with the SEC in a post on its own website at 5 p.m. EDT, on Sept. 12. Those filings, available online contain details including its earnings reports for the company and the user traffic on its website.
The company estimates that it has more than 200 million monthly active users and that more than 500 million tweets are made on its website every day.
Analysts have valued the company as high as $14 billion.
