Twitter Considers Basing European Office In London

Micro-blogging giant Twitter is considering basing its first head quarters in London, after its executives met with the Prime Minister and the Mayor of London at 10 Downing Street.

According to The Telegraph, Twitter's head of international strategy, Katie Jacobs Stanton, and other Twitter executives met with PM David Cameron and London Mayor Boris Johnson to discuss the possibility of Twitter opening up an office in London.

A Twitter spokesperson said in a statement: “There were a few of us in London this week. We are considering London and other European locations to create an initial and small presence in 2011.”

It has been rumoured by The Telegraph that if they do settle in London, the Twitter HQ will probably be based at the Old Street 'Silicon Roundabout', which is being touted as UK's answer to Silicon Valley. The government has pledged £400 million in developing the upcoming technology hub in London.
