Twitter announced that it had moved its infrastructure to a new home at an undisclosed location last month. The company said that the new location will allow it to stay constantly and provide greater reliability. A custom built datacenter in Utah which was called as the house gear of the Twitter has been plagued with complications. The Twitter has moved most of the operations of the site to a facility in Sacramento, California due to that problem. The disruption was due to the reason that some people were using the version of the twitter site that preceded a redesign which was unveiled in the month of September. The disruption also states that other twitter users were unable to log on at all as they were greeted with a page which informs that something is technically wrong. On the other hand, the users were informed that the site also promises them to have things back to normalcy soon.

Very recently it was identified that after threatening to leave the city for suburbs, Twitter is well on its way to get a tax break in SanFransisco.

By next week a second vote is expected for sure. If that is implemented it would make the legislation official. Due to financial complications Twitter is said to have moved out of San Francisco. In a very recent interview, twitter has complained about the payroll tax of the city which makes the company today to pay an equivalent compensation of 1.5 percent for all employees.
