You’ve heard the hype about Twitter. Maybe you don’t understand why it’s important or what it is. It’s a microblogging tool that I’ve found very useful. It lets you send 140-character messages to the world telling them what you’re doing. Last week they announced that they had received funding, so I went over there to get the inside look. In this video you meet Alex Payne, developer, Jason Goldman, product manager, Jack Dorsey, founder and CEO, Britt Selvitelle, developer, Jeremy Latrasse, operations, Biz Stone, co-founder and creative director, Krissy Bush, office manager, and two people who don’t work at Twitter but who share Twitter’s San Francisco office: Adam Rugel, founder and CEO of 71miles.com and Niall Kennedy, a web technologist.
