Twitter Is Worth US$8 Billion

The company is currently trying to raise US$400 million to finance its various projects. According to insider reports leading the group that will make the investment is DST Global, which is headed by Russian billionaire Yuri Milner. Previous investors such as Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers will also be helping out Twitter reach its target.

With most social networks reported to be going public, Twitter has made it known that they don’t intend to go that route. It has even refused several offers from buyers to take over the company.

Twitter is becoming more popular everyday as data shows that 13 percent of US adults use the popular micro-blogging platform which is an increase from 8 percent last November 2010.
