Now that Twitter has selected to go public on the New York Stock Exchange and has picked the stock symbol TWTR to be traded under, the questions becomes what is the value of TWTR.com
What was the value of the domain name before the announcement and what is the value now??
The domain is for sale on Sedo.com with a Make Offer
The domain is going to a landing page and the first link of the left of the page is for Twitter.
Back in 2010 the domain name was owned by a Tweeter OPCO, LLC of Canton Ohio, which formerly was called Tweeter Home Entertainment.
The domain appears to have been acquired by the current owner, Schultze Asset Management of Purchase, New York in early 2012.
Lots of public companies own the matching .Com of their stock symbol, just a few stocks in the our (internet) sector; Yahoo owns Yhoo.com, Facebook owns FB.com; Verisign owns VRSN.com and Marchex owns MCHX.com
On the other hand Google does not own Goog.com Demand Media, Inc. does not own DMD.com and Apple does not own AAPL.com
