Twitter beats Google for number 2 on top 10 list of Internet IPOs

Twitter is now officially number two on the list of the top 10 internet initial public offerings of all time. While well behind Facebook, which raised over $16 billion, Twitter beat out Google, which raised only $1.7 billion in its IPO, and Yandex, the Russian search engine.
After hitting an opening high of as much $49 — an 89 percent pop — Twitter is now trading at $46 a share, which is still hugely up from its initial pricing of $26 from yesterday. At $26 per share, Twitter raised a bit less than $2 billion from the sale, putting it well over Google, Zynga, Groupon, and almost every one of the ten biggest Internet company IPOs in the U.S., ever:
Facebook: $16 billion
Twitter: $1.8 billion
Google: $1.7 billion
Yandex: $1.3 billion
Infonet Services: $1.1 billion
Shanda Games: $1.04 billion
Zynga: $1 billion
Giant Interactive Group: $887 million
Renren: $743 million
Groupon: $700 million
