Internet Imagineering HQ
I am in San Francisco for Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference. I found out that the conference is taking place less then a block from the Twitter world headquarters. Since Twitter is such a big part of my connected life these days, I couldn’t resist the urge to wander over during the time between conference sessions.
The Twitter HQ doesn’t even have a sign on the outside of the building they are located within…just a non-descript 6-story office building, but the magic inside…nah, it looks like any other office. No stench of whale meat or chirping of birds. Just the place where one of the best parts of the Internet happens to be developed. I didn’t get a tour or anything…it’s an office where people are working, not Disneyland, but I did convince the receptionist to snap a photo of me, and I checked in on Foursquare, completing the social media double-play of the year for me at least!
They also have a nice little art wall with a collection of their awards, magazine covers and other artwork about the brand.
