NYSE takes tech IPO crown from NASDAQ

NYSE gets Twitter... and the title.

FORTUNE -- This must be a pretty rough morning over at the NASDAQ.

First, chief rival NYSE managed to bring Twitter (TWTR) public without any of the tech snafus that NASDAQ suffered through last year with Facebook (FB). Now, NYSE gets to rub even more salt in the wound, thanks to this new Thomson Reuters infographic:

It is worth noting, however, that NASDAQ has making inroads in overall IPO issuance -- in part thanks to a 2013 boom in biotech offerings. Since Facebook's offering, there have beenĀ 134 NASDAQ IPOs and 141 NYSE IPOs -- which is a closer spread than the prior 18-month period.
