NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Like many, I am looking forward to Twitter's IPO, expected on Nov. 7, but not because I'll be participating. No, I'll just be watching, learning, and soaking it all in just like I did when Facebook (FB) went public in May 2012.You better believe, however, that Twitter's first day of trading won't be the debacle that was Facebook's introduction to the markets. The New York Stock Exchange is trying to make sure of that with rigorous testing, more rigorous, I would suspect than the treatment that Healthcare.gov endured prior to its own "IPO".
