Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Co-Founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, has reacted to an assertion made by Minister for Communication and Digitisation, Ursula Owusu.
Speaking in an interview on Accra-based radio station Asaase Radio, the Minister stated that the social media giant boss will be relocating to Ghana in June this year, as part of plans to establish Twitter’s presence on the Continent with its headquarters situated in Ghana.
“Jack will be based in Accra, so this will be his base while he visits the other countries on the continent and I am hoping his friends would also follow him and see what he finds so special about Accra,” she stated in the interview.
But Jack Dorsey in a quick response to the story first published by the radio station, said he has no plans of relocating to Ghana at the moment although he intends to do so in the future.
“No plans yet! But def going to at some point in time,” tweeted Jack Dorsey.
Twitter, last month selected Ghana as its headquarters for operations on the African Continent.
The selection of Ghana as the company’s headquarters for Africa was announced by Jack Dorsey in a tweet.
The selection of Ghana as the company’s headquarters on the continent forms part of Twitter’s plans to expand its operations and workforce in emerging markets such as Africa to attract more users.
