Twitter Raising Huge Huge Cash – Close To 100 Million, @ 1 Billion Valuation

Twitter is raising somewhere close to $100 million in its newest fundraising activity. This is almost double than what was being expected. WSJ reports that as many seven investors are throwing in cash. Here are the details:
1). Investors are valuing Twitter at $1 billion and pooling in some $100 million.
2). New investors –
-T. Rowe Price (mutual fund biggie)
-Insight Venture Partners (private-equity firm) – rumoured to be the biggest investor

Though there have been reports flowing around about the Twitter’s revenue model but the company is yet to generate any real revenue. In two other rounds of fundraising earlier, Twitter raised close to $55 million and reports suggest that it still has close to $30 million left in bank. It is worth noting here that earlier this year Twitter was valued at $250 by investors, so (virtually though) it has quadrupled in the eyes of investors in just a period of some 7 months.  The service currently has 25 million users around the globe.
