Twitter just filed for an IPO and made the announcement with — what else — a tweet:
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.

We’re here in downtown Seattle at the GeekWire Summit and just spoke with Bill Gurley, a general partner with Benchmark, a Silicon Valley VC firm that has invested in Twitter. We actually asked Gurley this morning about Twitter’s IPO, but he wouldn’t share any details.
“I’ve not answered that question more than I’ve not answered any other question,” Gurley said.
We’ll be updating as we learn more.
