Kingdom Holding, the investment firm owned by billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, now owns 0.72 percent of Twitter, having originally invested $50 million in the tech company in 2011.

Twitter listed on the New York Stock Exchange in November 2013. Its market capitalization is $18.7 billion, according to Reuters data.
