The Birth of Twitter

My friends will tell you many different things about me, but there is one thing that all of them know for sure: I live for Twitter. Global technology has been enhanced greatly by its innovation. Countries, companies, and individuals have used its fantastic 140 character format. In a lecture he gave last month at Stanford University, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey gives a great account of how the company got started. The entire lecture can be seen here. However, here is a short clip:
