Twitter's 12 new jobs

MICRO-BLOGGING giant Twitter plans to bring 12 new jobs online in Ireland.

The group has begun to boost its Irish operation after opening a Dublin office last year.

Twitter has now advertised a dozen roles in sales and client support, as well as IT and support staff, but is expected to increase recruitment in the coming months.

Most of the jobs advertised require a degree or equivalent experience and several look for a second language, as well a clear appreciation for Twitter and technology and a "sense of humour -- it's going to be a wild ride."
