Extremely popular in the world of social media marketing, Twitter is set to locate a new international office in Ireland, according to a report published by the Irish Independent.
The announcement was made by the Industrial Development Agency (IDA) Ireland in a tweet – appropriately.
IDA Ireland’s tweet read: “Ireland is trending. Twitter to establish international office in Dublin.”
Providing a suitable environment and a favourable tax regime, Dublin has seen off competition from other renowned cities, including London, for the chance to become the home of the new office.
Ireland’s Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton was delighted with the decision.
He said: “It’s a great win for Ireland,” adding “It shows that despite our difficulties, we have great strengths in our economy.”
While the possible number of jobs that the office will bring hasn’t yet been disclosed, the IDA’s chief executive, Barry O’Leary said that the decision was fantastic, and would ensure that the already strong digital media section was added too.
The micro-blogging service boasts huge user numbers, with 100 million logging on every month.
