Twitter deciding to open its European headquarters in the UK would be of huge benefit to the nation's technology sector.
That is according to Justin Cooke, chair of the British Interactive Media Association, who said that having a base in the UK would make "perfect sense" for Twitter and would help them "establish a stronghold into Europe and beyond".
Earlier this week the Daily Telegraph reported that Prime Minister David Cameron and Mayor of London Boris Johnson released a personal plea to Twitter to create a new European HQ in the UK.
The move could see a number of businesses working closely with Twitter, helping them to improve their online marketing campaigns.
Mr Cooke added that a move to the UK by the micro-blogging site could also help create a more technology-educated nation.
"The UK must continue to invest more in education, training and infrastructure to ensure that we are not just a hub, but a connected nation," he said.
"Having cutting-edge businesses like Twitter basing themselves in the UK is a huge vote of confidence in our vision of making Britain the centre of the global digital economy."
