Recently, I posted some quick info about the history and concept of Twitter, as well as a link to a Biz Stone interview. Click here to read it. One of the things I find fascinating about Twitter is the fluid, team effort that goes into running the company. Biz talked about how the three co-founders, himself, Jack Dorsey, and Evan Williams, sort of swap in and out of the role depending on the needs at the time. Ego just doesn’t seem to factor into the equation.
Dorsey, Williams, and Stone have also turned down substantial offers for Twitter, knowing that there’s more for them to accomplish with it. Biz talked about the global impact and the positive change that can come from the info-sharing site.
Check out this article from Fast Company (click here) – an interview with Jack Dorsey – some of the same themes come up. These three are very innovative – I can’t wait to see how Dorsey’s new mobile credit card idea, Square, works out!
