Since opening in a serviced office in the fall of 2013, the Singapore-based team has grown to 80 staff members in less than two years and moved to a new office space to accommodate the company’s plans to more than double its workforce. The new regional headquarters will be home to a wide range of business functions, including sales, partnerships, marketing, HR, finance, user services, legal, policy, and trust & safety.

The new office was designed with both Twitter and Singapore in mind. There are elements of Singapore’s heritage incorporated throughout the interior design, including Peranakan wall and floor tiles, nostalgic old-style doors and windows, 1970s wall grilles, bricks and furniture. As a reflection of Twitter’s role as a platform for live, public conversations, the office has a large Commons area for events of up to 100 people, while many work areas throughout the office were built for group discussions, including The Library. The #LoveWhereYouWork neon hashtag, Twitter vending machine, Tweet wall and birdhouses around the office emphasize the company’s iconic brand. All the rooms are also named after birds from across the region, including Emu the boardroom.
