Weibo Corp., the Chinese microblogging service often compared with Twitter, filed Friday for a US stock offering seeking to raise $500 million. The move will allow the popular Chinese-language social network to spin off from the Internet giant Sina, according to documents filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. The filing said Weibo had 129.1 million monthly active users in December and 61.4 million average daily active users. The company did not indicate whether Weibo would file its IPO on the Nasdaq or New York Stock Exchange.
