Benchmark Joins Twitter in San Francisco’s Emerging Startup Hub

Twitter Inc. will be joined by one of its biggest investors soon after the company moves to San Francisco’s gritty Mid-Market neighborhood next month.

Benchmark Capital, which bought a stake in the micro-blogging service three years ago, signed a lease this week for more than 10,000 square feet of space on Market Street, a half mile from Twitter’s new headquarters. The office is just above the Warfield Theater, a 90-year-old entertainment hall that’s featured everyone from Louis Armstrong to Bob Dylan.
