medium.com — Ken bb, u so bae that I want to buy you cheddar biscuits. Anyway. Here's the S tweet: TWTR and LNKD are trading at less than 5x trailing revenue!

A Second Look At The 2015 Tech IPO Market

mattermark.com — Last week, we took a look at the performance of 2015 technology IPOs compared to their then-current share price.
