Social networking site Twitter has finally been listed on the stock market.

The site, which boats 200 million users, hopes to raise $1 billion from selling shares to the public.

However the company admitted that it has never made a profit, losing $275 million in just the past 3 years.

CBS News Technology Analyst Larry Majid told BBC Radio 5 live's Wake Up to Money: "Twitter has to figure out a better way to monetise and it has do it in a way that doesn't turn people off... They have a real dilemma."
