Twitter to Set Up Dublin Office

The micro-blogging social network site, Twitter, has confirmed rumours that an ‘international’ office is to be set up in Ireland. The rapidly growing site currently has 100 million users and has been described as ‘one of the most exciting and fastest-growing’ companies in the world by Richard Bruton, the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation.

The news from the San Francisco based company was tweeted from the Twitter account of IDA Ireland yesterday morning, ‘Ireland is trending. Twitter to establish international office in Dublin’. Twitter also released a short statement confirming the announcement, dubbing the ‘third location outside the US’ as a ‘great next step in the company’s global expansion’.

Bruton also took the news as an indication that Ireland is fast becoming the ‘internet capital of Europe’. There are already Twitter offices in London and Tokyo outside of the US. Late 2010 saw speculation as to where the European headquarters for the company may be, London, Berlin and Dublin in the running.

The number of new jobs that will come out of the new office is as of yet unclear. Twitter currently employs around 650 people all over the world. Twitter registered as a new Irish company earlier this month, Twitter International Company, as well as purchasing a number of properties in Dublin 2 and in Dublin 4, but where the site will be is still unclear.
