‘Twitter’ name is registered
A BRAY resident has added fuel to rumours that Twitter is coming to Ireland by registering ' Twitter Limited' as a company name.
The sole shareholder is David Colleran, with an address in Bray and business premises in Dublin, who has 100 shares in the company at €1 each.
The company address has been filed as 74 Lower Camden Street, Dublin 2. That address is occupied by Colleran & Company Chartered Accountants as well as by mycompany.ie - a company that practices 'online company and tax registration in Ireland.'
Twitter Limited was filed with the Companies Registration Office just last month, however Twitter Inc, the US owners of Twitter, is not a shareholder.
It emerged late last year that the social networking phenomenon was considering basing European operations in either Dublin or London when it expands this year.
However, Twitter Inc has not confirmed the rumours other than to say the company will start to hire European staff this year. The accountancy firm would make no comment on the matter.
