Twitter showed the power of social media again in September when it announced on its own company microblog account that it had started a process to go public by filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

We’ve confidentially submitted an S-1 to the SEC for a planned IPO. This Tweet does not constitute an offer of any securities for sale.

Twitter repeated that move again on Wednesday when it announced its pricing for the IPO. Twitter is planning deals with TV networks and may change site features to attract investors, having survived beyond any startups wildest dreams and still looking for the next big thing.
