Twitter to open a London Office

Twitter are opening an office in London, despite fears that a London address might bring the service under the thumb of British injunctions.

The head of Twitter’s international expansion Katie Jacobs Stanton revealed that developments for the UK office had started but the “location of our Euro HQ is still TBD”.

Fears remain that gaining Twitter headquarters in London could bring them under UK media publishing laws. The problems with regulating the online circulation of news have been highlighted with the recent court order brought about by Ryan Giggs, who is demanding details of Twitter users who named him in the recent speculation over an extra martial affair.
