Earlier this month we reported on the news that San Francisco’s Board Of Supervisors approved an ordinance that excluded Twitter (and some other businesses) from paying a 1.5% city payroll tax for the next 6 years. Prior to this Twitter had been considering leaving San Francisco altogether.
And now, in a post on their official blog entitled The Tweets Of San Francisco (I like it), Twitter has officially confirmed that they are staying in the city, and moving to new offices therein.
Twitter has begun recruiting for posts in a new UK office in London (East or West, depending on what you read), which is expected to serve the commercial interests of the platform in Europe, reports Media Week.
San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors approved an ordinance late Tuesday that excludes Twitter and some other businesses from paying a 1.5% city payroll tax for the next six years, reports The Wall Street Journal.
“I would also like to thank Twitter for making a commitment to remain in San Francisco and for their enthusiasm about joining our broad-based effort to revitalize Central Market and the Tenderloin,” said San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee in a statement. “This new partnership with Twitter represents just one example of how the City can work collaboratively with businesses, community-based organizations, property owners, and area residents to catalyze meaningful change in this neighborhood.”
