Twitter has remained silent on when it plans to go public, but company actions suggest that it is aiming to file its initial public offering in 2014, according to a report.

The company's finance chief, Mike Gupta, who joined Twitter last year, is in talks with banks about handing the public offering, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Gupta also played a key role in Zynga's IPO in 2011, helping negotiate the company's $1 billion line of credit from several banks including Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs.

USA Today previously reported that the IPO could come early next year.
