Multinational light still shining
Twitter, that communications phenomenon, plans to set up an international office in Dublin, thereby joining Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, eBay and other big names in the Irish internet hub.
It will be Twitter's third location outside the United States, "a great next step in the company's expansion".
But the significance goes wider than the company, or the jobs it will create here. When Enterprise Minister Richard Bruton hailed the plan as "a massive win" for the country, he had in mind more than the hundreds of jobs to which we can look forward.
