On Friday, June 8th, Twitter moved its San Francisco headquarters from the rather ordinary 795 Folsom St. to 1355 Market Street, an impressively masculine Art Deco gem, originally known as the San Francisco Mart. It took three years of renovations and a six-year payroll-tax- break from the city to convince the microblog giant to trade up to its new headquarters and agree to move 1,000 employees to the SoMa (South of Market) landmark. They will arrive during the next thirty days. SoMa residents will be on the lookout and hoping that many of the fresh faces choose to become new neighbors.
