Twitter simulated share trial a success
The New York Stock Exchange has reported that a test run of Twitter's share sale was a success.
A simulated sale of Twitter shares on Saturday operated successfully, which hopes to prevent any technical problems that may occur when the shares go public.
Twitter is the biggest tech company to go public since social network rival Facebook.
ON Facebook's first day of trading with Nasdaq, it faced a glitch which meant that some trades did not go through.
The Nasdaq was later fined $10mby the regulator, the Securities and Exchange Commission, for the problems.
By running this trail, NYSE hopes to avoid similar problems.
