The renowned online social networking service Twitter officially launched its Asia-Pacific headquarters on June 11 in Singapore.

A representative from Twitter said that Singapore, with its pro-business environment, easy connection to the rest of the region and world-class talent pool across multiple functions, is the ideal choice for Twitter’s regional headquarters.

The new regional office will be home to a wide range of business functions including sales, partnership, marketing and human resources.

Twitter will be adding more than 100 jobs from the current 80-member staff to meet the growing demand of its users, partners and advertisers across the Asia-Pacific region.-VNA
