Twitter has been celebrating an “exciting day” at their European headquarters in Dublin, Ireland. They’ve officially opened their new offices on Pearse Street in Dublin city centre where they employ 100 staff, and have promised to hire 100 more by this time next year.

Twitter has once again teamed up with Vizify, launching #FollowMe, a video tool that enables users to instantly create an animated portrait of their Twitter profile.
Each shareable movie depicts that user’s top tweets, photos and followers, set to a soundtrack pulled from a 1-million-song-strong catalogue provided by partner Rumblefish.
The blog didn’t share another piece of news about the update though, one that can be found on the iTunes page: Twitter has cast video services Mobypicture and Vodpod out into the cold, dark Web to fend for themselves (or just, you know, upload their videos somewhere else).
Fortunately, Twitter isn’t something the general public will be using with any regularity five years from now, so maybe they can go live with LinkedIn or something.
So it looks like yesterday’s video post by Twitter’s CEO was no mistake. They sure know how to get the Internets buzzing at Twitter, hmm?
And today we have a snazzy new feature to play with, six-second videos. Third-party video developers would do well to find a new home – and the folks at Tumblr better pick up the pace too, because Twitter is coming for you next.
In case you missed it, Jimmy Kimmel Live has a new 11.35pm timeslot and, as he takes on late night veterans Jay Leno and David Letterman, Kimmel has been doing the full court publicity press this week, with big celebrity appearances by Jennifer Aniston, Ryan Gosling and others on his show.
Last night, Kimmel introduced the third take on his popular “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” feature, which first debuted last year. In this edition, Selena Gomez, Larry King, Dr. Phil, Simon Cowell, Tom Arnold and other famous folk read one particularly offensive message that’s been sent to (or about) them on Twitter, with hilarious results.
Twitter started rolling out its Facebook-a-like header photos to profiles back in September, and users who haven’t yet implemented this new functionality have until tomorrow (December 12th) to upload a suitable image.
Otherwise, Twitter is going to force the change upon you, and you’ll be left with a default grey box.
Did you ever hope that somebody would make a movie about Twitter?
After all, it worked brilliantly for Facebook with The Social Network, so why not our favourite micro-blogging platform, too?
Well, I have some great news. The first Twitter movie is finally here!
