SOCIAL network Twitter has made a series of management changes in what appears to be preparation for the company’s listing.

Last week former Ticketmaster chief Nathan Hubbard joined Twitter as its first head of commerce and on Saturday the company announced Vijaya Gadde – who has a background in corporate and securities law at Wilcon Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati – would be taking over as general counsel.

“The recent hirings indicate the company is doing everything they need to do to prepare to file an IPO in 2014, but until they file I would expect them to deny this,” said Max Wolff, analyst at Greencrest Capital.
