Our new nest

Monday, 11 June 2012

“The city where we have started and grown will remain our future home.” That’s what we said about 14 months ago when we announced that we were maintaining our roots in San Francisco.

Twitter was born in the City by the Bay, and we’re grateful to Mayor Ed Lee, the Board of Supervisors (especially Supervisors Jane Kim and David Chiu), the Office of Economic and Workforce Development, and the Shorenstein Company for helping us expand locally.

Now our new space is ready, and we’re on the move to Market Square. We’re especially pleased to benefit from the considerable effort Shorenstein has taken to revitalize not only a beautiful landmark property, but a corner of the City that had fallen on hard times.

Among other things, we’re looking forward to meeting our new neighbors. We aim to be a friend and good citizen to the many wonderful social service, arts and charitable organizations based here, and to do our part in renewing an historic — and newly promising — area.

If you’d like to know more about our new neighborhood, an initiative called Creative Currency (@cr8c) is bringing together developers, designers, and other urban revitalizers to support the community organizations that give the Mid-Market District a lot of its heart.

And now, back to nesting.
