Twitter Opts For Berlin for its German HQ

Twitter has opted for Berlin as the location for its German HQ, reports Focus. We have already given the hint by the Jack Dorsey, company’s Executive Chairman, who said at the January’s DLD conference in Munich that company was hiring in Germany. So, the company has obvious plans to come to Germany and if the report from Focus carries any weight, then choosing Berlin as a location for its HQ is certainly sensible, considering the growing profile of the city as a technology hotspot.

We have already some of the most impressive and stylish startups, including SoundCloud, 6Wunderkinder and Amen, of Europe emerged from the Berlin.

Focus, while quoting industry sources, reports that Twitter has already employed its German chief and also finds out that the job vacancies in the country have vanished from the country’s website. The reports further claims that the ads for these vacancies had pointed put that the company was considering Berlin, Hamburg or Munich as the location for its German HQ.

However, Twitter declines to comment on the report saying that it currently doesn’t have anything to tell about the location of its HQ in Germany.

Following London and Dublin offices, the opening of German office would be Twitter’s third major in Europe. The choice of Berlin is certainly sensible for the fact that it is the country’s capital and a hub for startups. However, it is not normally the first choice for international companies to open their offices in. For instance, the search giant Google has its office in Munich.

It seems that Twitter will utilize its new office to build relationships with sports clubs and other brands, going after the common practice of US tech companies using the majority of their technical skills base in their home turf and utilizing satellite offices abroad for business development.
