Twitter to open London Office

Twitter are expanding their office space to London and Japan, and plans have been revealed that the UK based operation, is part of a global campaign to attract commercial partners.

The company is now advertising for UK staff but there are very few posts available. So far just four posts have been identified: Account Executive, Senior Account Manager, Communications Manager and Business Development Mobile/Electronics.

It might seem like a very small number of posts but despite having a valuation of around $7.8 billion, Twitter only has 400 employees.

It is understood that Twitter is under pressure to select an office near “silicon roundabout” – more commonly known as Old Street roundabout – around which the Government has pledged £400m of funding to create a new “Tech City” and encourage US-style innovation.
