Twitter’s IPO event from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange today will be streamed live, in a first for the NYSE. It’s fairly appropriate that Twitter would embrace real-time streaming online media to share this event with the world, given the nature of its business. And it means that if you’re a hardcore finance guy, or just passionate bout micro blogging platforms worth billions, you, too, can follow along at home. The embed above will switch to a live video feed once the show kicks off at 9:15 AM ET.
TechCrunch’s own Anthony Ha is also on the floor, so expect further updates from us as the day unfolds and TWTR begins trading publicly for the first time, with the initial price set at $26 per share.
