Whilst waiting for Twitter to come back online this morning, I ended up flicking through their official blog. As well as the news about their acquisition of Summize, now Twitter Search, was a note about the fact that they had moved into new offices.
Now is it just me or do these photos all feel a bit bubble 1.0 to you?
Is that seriously a table football? And is it me or is that the sort of view you only get from a penthouse?
I love Twitter, and am glad that they got the new funding, but maybe they should be thinking more about how to make some money, and less about what sort of plastic animal to have in the office. Apart from anything else, it should obviously be the fail whale.
UPDATE: Cheers to Martin for the comment below offering a glimpse into digg’s equally ridiculous offices. Anyone got any other funding-eating office examples of bubble 2.0 companies?
Thanks to Anthony for this link to This Ain’t No Disco (a site I’d seen before but forgotten about). Seriously, I don’t know how some of those places can afford to pay their staff and the rent. Oh, that’s right, they don’t.
