When a company starts out small, like less than 200 characters small, how much space does it need?Â With the additional $200M investment in Twitter, it seems the small thinking company needs more room to grow.
Located, currently, in the SoMa district at the corner of 4th St. and Folsolm, Twitter is a local icon and a draw for San Francisco.Â Residents are going to miss this microblogging giant.
Twitter's current San Francisco office is too small and the company is considering a move to Brisbane.Â A former Wal-Mart campus is located there, just waiting to be filled with the wunderkinds of Twitter.
The campus will off 200,000 square feet of space to Twitter, helping the company hire more people (40 new positions are listed on the site currently) and to develop more offices.
Not surprisingly, San Francisco doesn't want Twitter to leave, so they're working on a tax breaks package that might convince them to stay.
With 350 current Twitter employees, there just isn't enough room in the San Francisco office for continued growth, so SF may not want to hold its breath.
When a company wants to expand, they not only need more space, but they also need space in which to grow their future.
Sorry San Francisco, it seems that Twitter is just too big for its britches these days.Â And far too big for yours as well.
