With 150% user growth in one year, Twitter gets ready to open its new offices in France!
Twitter is set to open new offices in Paris, adding to the six additional premises it already has outside of the United States.
The announcement, made at the Le Web 2012 conference in Paris, will add to the social network’s existing international offices in Japan, Korea, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany and Brazil.
Katie Stanton, Vice President of International Market Development, Twitter, said:
“The next market is France. We’re really excited about the opportunity [there]. It has been one of our fastest growing markets around the world. Which has been tremendous, we’ve seen something like 150 percent user growth year over year and that’s 350 percent growth in tweets on a daily basis.”
She also revealed that Twitter would be applying a much greater focus on the cities in France for ongoing trends. Starting with Toulouse and Bordeaux, she said the goal was for Twitter users to be able to land anywhere on the site and immediately see what is happening, via the tweets being posted, for any given location.
