Twitter will join the rest of the bulls and the bears this Thursday when it begins trading its 70 million shares on the New York Stock Exchange. The social network and microblogging service set the entire social sphere aflutter this week when it announced a last-minute raise to its initial public offering price from $17 to $20 per share to $23 to $25 in a United States Securities and Exchange Commission filing. The Wall Street Journal also reported that Twitter is expected to raise the price again to $25 to $28 per share. But is Twitter (TWTR) worth the extra pocket change? Here are ten Twitter statistics to help you determine Twitter's monetary value in 140 characters or less.
