Cape Town – Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has officially announced the presence of a Twitter headquarters on the African continent by launching in Ghana.
This comes after Dorsey visited the country in 2019 when he attended a Bitcoin meet-up just weeks after he invested in a cryptocurrency start-up.
Explaining the reasons for choosing Ghana, Jack Dorsey said: “As a champion for democracy, Ghana is a supporter of free speech, online freedom, and the Open Internet, of which Twitter is also an advocate.
“Furthermore, Ghana’s recent appointment to host The Secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Area aligns with our overarching goal to establish a presence in the region that will support our efforts to improve and tailor our service across Africa.
“Whenever we enter new markets, we work hard to ensure that we are not just investing in the talent that we hire, but also investing in local communities and the social fabric that supports them.
