Twitter, which is expected to be valued at up to USD 15 billion, filed with US regulators on September 12 to go public, but did so confidentially and without providing a timeline under a process available to emerging growth companies.

Quartz said that Twitter's IPO could still be delayed by a variety of factors, from changes to the prospectus to market conditions, to a potential shutdown of the US government. Representatives for Twitter did not immediately respond to a request seeking comment on the Quartz report.

Twitter is leaning toward picking the New York Stock Exchange over Nasdaq for its highly anticipated initial public offering, a person familiar with the matter said last week.

Another person familiar with the matter said earlier in September 2013 that Twitter aimed for its shares to trade in the stock market before the US holiday of Thanksgiving on November 28, a timeline also reported by Quartz on Sunday.
