|By:, SA News Editor

Sources tell CNBC Twitter (TWTR) has set Friday, Nov. 15 "as a tentative date to begin trading." An early version of Twitter's S-1 unearthed by PrivCo had already pointed to a Nov. 15 IPO date.

Twitter's IPO roadshow is expected to start on Oct. 25, and end about a week before the tentative IPO date. CNBC, paraphrasing a source: "Better to speed the deal up if demand is high, than delay it and risk spooking investors."

The report comes a day after Twiiter released an update S-1 that accounted for its Q3 results, and announced it would list on the NYSE. Twitter IPO plays GSV Capital (GSVC +1.5%) and the Firsthand Technology Value Fund (SVVC +1%) are following markets higher.
