Ireland IT Capital of the World with Twitter Move?

I write this on a day when it was announced that massively popular Social Networking site Twitter will be setting up an international base in Ireland. There had been murmurings that it might happen from months back but there was stiff competition from a number of other cities including London but Dublin has won out in the end probably because of it’s low corporation tax rate and possibly because of the existing presence of a number of very high profile companies here.

Ireland pretty much has a clean sweep of the top IT companies in the world now including Facebook, Google, Paypal, eBay, Linkedin, Microsoft, Intel, Yahoo, Zynga, IBM, Apple and HP – an incredible list and surely one that puts us firmly on the international business map.

Here’s hoping the government will now throw everything it has at IT support in Ireland from Education to Broadband infrastructure and guarantee we lose the twee image of Ireland and replace it with one of innovation, modernity, hi-tech and progression, leading us out of recession and showing the world how it’s done.

Ole, ole, ole..

  1. I’m afraid Twitter and other social sites are as efficient as Superman in saving the world…The costume doesn’t give special powers to superheroes, social marketing is not going to save companies…Still, if you’re a Twitter addict, you can try   ActiveXperts Twitter Toolkit   http://download.searchforsoft.com/Development/Components-Libraries/ActiveXperts-Twitter-Toolkit-86244.htm, which may   enable your application to post or list Tweets, browse Twitter users, etc.

  2. Yes definitely Ireland is the IT capital of the world now (after twitter presence in Ireland). I was unaware that other monster of IT field are also there. However, now nobody can deny that Ireland is the IT hub and capital of the world.
