Twitter is a rather small company with just 50 employees in San Francisco, but already worth one billion dollars, as they just received an injection worth $50 million.
Twitter has not officially confirmed this new $50 million, which most of it came from Insight Venture Partners in New York, but TechCrunch reports that the employees was informed of this on a meeting a couple of days ago.
Earlier this year, Twitter received around $35 million from Benchmark Capital and Institutional Venture Partners. Back then, the company’s value was set at $250 million
