Twitter Opens Office in Hong Kong
Hot on the heels of its Indonesian office opening last week, Twitter has officially opened its Hong Kong office today to service the online and mobile advertising markets across Greater China.
With many Chinese brand advertisers and app developers selling to the worldwide market, Twitter provides an attractive opportunity to reach over 288 million monthly active users, 80% of which are on mobile, that send over 500 million Tweets per day. In addition, millions of people across Hong Kong and Taiwan use Twitter, and local advertisers can reach them directly, too. The HK office will be led by Peter Greenberger (@pgreenberger), Twitter’s Sales Director of Emerging Markets. Twitter Hong Kong is actively hiring and open roles are available at www.twitter.com/jobs.
“We are capitalizing on this growing trend of the most ambitious, entrepreneurial and successful Chinese companies wanting to go global, and we believe that Twitter is an essential way for them to connect and engage with the world,” said Shailesh Rao (@shaileshrao), Twitter’s Vice President of Asia Pacific, Americas and Emerging Markets. “Opening our Hong Kong office now and hiring a sales support team to work directly with advertisers across the Greater China market will contribute to our next phase of growth in Asia.”
“We are thrilled to open our new Hong Kong office to better serve the needs of Chinese companies, from brand advertisers to app developers, that use online and mobile advertising to target a global audience,” said Peter Greenberger. “Engagement is the new social currency for businesses of all sizes and Twitter’s real-time marketing platform historically provides on average 3-5 times higher engagement rate than traditional digital advertising.”
