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.

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 been 134 NASDAQ IPOs and 141 NYSE IPOs -- which is a closer spread than the prior 18-month period.
