Twitter's global expansion continued today as the social firm announced it was opening a sales office in Paris at the LeWeb conference in The City of Light, per a Twitter rep late this afternoon.

Recent rumblings have suggested the company was having issues hiring managerial talent for the office. The Twitter rep declined to comment on how many staffers the location will have.

The presence in France adds to the San Francisco-based tech firm's international offices in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Japan, Korea and Brazil. Last month, it tweeted (below) that it hired a country director for Brazil.

After the Paris announcement, Twitter tweeted that it had seen 150 percent user growth in the last year.
