Jul27 Hatching Twitter
A little more than a year after the news broke that I was writing the Twitter Book, here it is, titled: “Hatching Twitter: A True Story of Money, Power, Friendship, and Betrayal.”
The book is written as narrative non-fiction and offers a fascinating story from the beginning to the end. Although it has its fair share of drama and palace intrigue, the story explores some important themes around Twitter and how it changed almost every aspect of our daily lives, including politics, revolutions, business, love and friendship.
Here’s an except from the summary:
Nick Bilton of the New York Times takes readers behind the scenes with a narrative that shows what happened inside Twitter as it grew at exponential speeds. This is a tale of betrayed friendships and high-stakes power struggles as the four founders—Biz Stone, Evan Williams, Jack Dorsey, and Noah Glass—went from everyday engineers to wealthy celebrities, featured on magazine covers, Oprah, The Daily Show, and Time’s list of the world’s most influential people.
