Twitter, an online social networking and microblogging service, raised the proposed deal size for its upcoming IPO on Monday. The San Francisco, CA-based company now plans to raise up to $1.75 billion by offering 70.0 million shares at a price range of $23 to $25. The company had previously filed to offer the same number of shares at a range of $17 to $20. At the high end of the revised range, Twitter would raise 35% greater proceeds than previously anticipated and would command a fully diluted market cap of $17.3 billion, up 35% from its previously proposed market cap of $12.8 billion.

Twitter, which was founded in 2006 and booked $534 million in sales for the 12 months ended September 30, 2013, plans to list on the NYSE under the symbol TWTR . Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, J.P. Morgan, BofA Merrill Lynch and Deutsche Bank are the joint bookrunners on the deal.
