Twitter Opens its Asia-Pacific Headquarters in Singapore

Twitter officially opened its Asia-Pacific headquarters in Singapore on June 11, 2015 with a plan to expand operations and add more than 100 new jobs over the next few years. Since its opening in a serviced office in 2013, Twitter's Singapore-based team has grown to 80 staff in less than two years and moved to a new office space amid the company's plans to accommodate more than double its workforce. The expansion of the Singapore office is in response to the growing demand from users, partners and advertisers across the Asia-Pacific region. The new regional headquarters will be home to a wide range of business functions, including sales, partnerships, marketing, human resource, finance, user services, legal, policy, and trust and safety. In addition to the RealTimeLab in its new office, there are plans to hire technical staff, including data analytics professionals, product specialists, engineering and technology support, to create a regional hub for live, digital innovations in Singapore. The RealTimeLab is a social media centre of excellence to create, execute and share live Twitter campaigns, analytics and data visualisations with customers, partners and the community. In addition, key cultural moments from around the region are highlighted, including national elections, sporting events, entertainment shows and disaster responses.
