Apple has acquired Topsy Labs, a social media analysis firm specializing in charting Twitter trends. Price: Somewhere north of $200 million. Topsy, one of handful of companies with access to Twitter’s full “firehose” of tweets, recently unveiled a search engine capable of searching through the 425 billion or so tweets published to Twitter since the company’s debut in 2006. It’s not yet clear how Apple plans to use Topsy.
Twitter’s initial public offering was expected to price at $25 to $28 a share, and that’s exactly where it has come in. Moments ago, the microblogging service said its IPO of 70 million shares has priced at $26 a share. At that price, Twitter will have a market capitalization of approximately $14 billion when it opens for trading Thursday morning on the New York Stock Exchange.
