Hey Twitter thanks for the shout out for Hoboken! Congrats on your IPO. Twitter kept us connected through the storm. TY— Dawn Zimmer (@dawnzimmernj) October 4, 2013What makes it perhaps even more interesting is that Hoboken has started to see a renaissance as a burgeoning tech community, due in large part to Twitter. Stevens Institute of Technology is one of the finest engineering schools in the country. There's a meetup held every month in Hoboken to discuss the technology field, bringing together some of the best minds in venture capital, technology, and business. While Hoboken is no Silicon Valley or even Silicon Alley (an area in NYC where a growing tech community is taking place), it's seeing a tech renaissance, and it's nice to be a small part of it. It's nice to see Hoboken featured so prominently in Twitter's S-1 filing, even if it was for something that we hope we'll never see again. Oh, and Mayor Zimmer, thanks for the follow ;) -- Written by Chris Ciaccia in New York >Contact by Email. Follow @Chris_Ciaccia
