And they are off as Twitter prices just shy of the whisper $27 upper end of the IPO range, raising $1.82 billion in equity proceeds for the 70 million shares it will sell (before the greenshoe is exercised).
For those curious, this is how the big client-focused banks are advising their brokers to handle the IPO:
- [We] will not be accepting BUY market orders pre-open.
- Orders placed before 9:28 am will be included in the opening print; however, if the IPO opening is pushed past 9:30, [we] will handle opening orders placed after 9:28am on a best efforts basis.
- When TWTR opens, any limit order whose price deviates more than 15% from the National Best Bid / Offer (NBBO) will be rejected.
So make sure to have that limit buy just around 14% below the NBBO if and when the market crashes once again and some algo takes TWTR to $0.002 in a millisecond.

Of course – now that TWTR is done, we move to the next one…
