Will Twitter file a secret IPO? By Zachary M. Seward Twitter is expected to file for an initial public offering in late 2013 or early 2014 . That much is widely known. Less attention has been paid to whether Twitter will make a normal IPO filing or if, as new rules allow, the company will try to go public in secret. The Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, signed into US law last year, lets firms with less than $1 billion in annual revenue keep their IPO filings confidential up until three weeks before they start marketing shares to investors in a “ road show .” It was largely proposed and pushed by venture capitalists in Silicon Valley, who said it would stem a decline in US IPOs by reducing the burdens of going public felt by smaller firms. Ordinarily, a company has to make public a lengthy discussion of its financials, strategy, and risks months before an IPO, giving investors—and competitors—more of a chance to evaluate the stock.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
