We wonder if any start-up hustlers will try to move in downstairs? Twitter just became the latest Silicon Valley (well, technically San Francisco) darling to open a New York office, Peter Kafka reports at AllThingsD after noticing a Twitter employee frequenting the Home Depot on 3rd Ave. and W. 59th just a few blocks from Central Park. The location of the “second mothership” as culture director Elizabeth Weil, who based on her last six days of tweets appears to have single-handedly decorated the new digs, suggesting the start-up eschewed the start-up happy Flatiron District, avoided the Google-shadowed jungle streets of Chelsea, steered clear of Foursquare’s territory in the East Village and will have to hop a train to see Twitter buddies at Pivotal Labs in Union Square.

Twitter is hiring for a few positions in New York, as we reported a few weeks ago, including a business development manager and brand advocate.

We’ll have to update ourĀ guide to Silicon Alley.
