Twitter To Launch German Office As It Expands Across Europe

Twitter’s chairman and co-founder Jack Dorsey announced on Sunday that the company was expanding into Germany, opening a new office to compliment the two European offices it opened in 2011.

Doresy was speaking at the DLD conference in Germany this Sunday, and answered questions about Twitter during an interview by David Kirkpatrick and Holger Schmidt.

As the Wall Street Journal reports, Dorsey didn’t reveal much more information than the simple fact that Twitter is looking for hires in Germany for a new office. He didn’t say anything about the number of employees or exactly when the office would be opened.

Twitter has strong connections to Germany, as its first programmer Florian Weber, was based in Hamburg when they hired him.

This will be Twitter’s third office in Europe when it opens. Back in April the company confirmed that it would be opening its first international office in London, UK, and hired its first employee at the end of May.

This office was responsible for selling the first batch of Promoted Products in the UK.

And on September 27, it was confirmed that Twitter was not only opening a second European office in Dublin, but also making this one its international headquarters.

During the conference, Dorsey was also asked about Twitter’s recent acquisition of social media summary service Summify, to which he replied that they would be instrumental in tackling the complicated task of uncovering relevant content from the firehose of tweets, according to The Next Web
