Twitter has announced it has filed paperwork with US regulators ahead of a planned stock market flotation.

"We've confidentially submitted an S-1 to the SEC for a planned IPO [initial public offering]," the company tweeted on its official feed.

The stock offering is the most hotly anticipated since Facebook listed its shares last year.
