It's not all bad news for Twitter -- the company celebrated the opening of its new Asia Pacific headquarters here in Singapore and invited us to take a look at its swanky new digs.

The company plans to create more than 100 new jobs and the office here will cater to growing demands from users, partners and advertisers.

The Twitter Commons area played host to the launch, with bean bags scattered all over for employees to chill out.

Because Twitter is looking to expand its headcount, there were desks that have yet to be filled. You'll notice that the company offers employees desks that allow them work while standing.

The doors in the office have a very old-school feel. These are meeting rooms, all named after birds.

Adorning the partitions that break up the office at regular intervals are money plants.
