TWITTER SETS TO OPEN ITS HEADQUARTERS IN GHANA

Twitter has announced it will recruit 11 people in Ghana, the company’s first hires on the African continent, and that it is looking into opening an office there.

The social media company joins Facebook and other tech companies moving into Africa.
“Africa will define the future,” Twitter’s founder, Jack Dorsey, said in 2019 after a visit to Nigerian, Ghana, Ethiopia and South Africa.

The jobs advertised in Ghana include positions for engineering, marketing and communications specialists.

Twitter said its new team members would be working remotely under work-from-home policies while it explored “the opportunity to open an office in Ghana in the future”.
Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo said in a tweet that the country would be the location of Twitter’s headquarters on the continent, although this information was not included in the company’s statement.

Facebook has several offices in Africa, including in Ghana’s neighbour Nigeria, where Mark Zuckerberg has been on a visit.
