‘Twit­ter’ name is reg­is­tered

Bray People - - NEWS -

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.
