Twitter announcement underlines Ireland’s strengths – Bruton

Jobs Minister Richard Bruton today welcomed the announcement by Twitter that the company is to establish an international office in Dublin. The company made the announcement by tweet earlier this morning.

Minister Bruton said:

Twitter is one of the most exciting and fastest-growing companies in the world. Today’s announcement that it is to establish an international office in Ireland is a massive win, and shows there is real ground for Ireland’s claim to be the internet capital of Europe. It also shows that, despite our difficulties, we still have real strengths as an economy, and it is important to acknowledge that.

The challenge now is to build on our strengths and the presence in Ireland of the world-leading companies like Twitter to build an indigenous engine of growth and get people back to work. Today’s announcement shows that we have real grounds for optimism in facing that challenge.
