Twitter creator Jack Dorsey will speak with the College about the popular social networking site on Nov. 4 in Kendall Hall, in an event hosted by the School of Business.
Jack Dorsey’s talk, titled “Twitter: Its Implications for Business and Beyond,” will encompass his experience in initiating and growing the Web site, ranked by Alexa.com as the 12th most popular site in the United States. The 5:00 P.M. event is free and open to the public.
This should be a very interesting talk, as Twitter was not created to be a business networking platform or even start out with a business plan or revenue stream. What it has turned into is nothing short of game-changing – with uses ranging from keeping the Red Cross in touch with disaster victims and hotels such as the Roger Smith reaching out to patrons to amazing fundraising and awareness movements like #BlameDrewsCancer. Jack’s take on the state of Twitter now will be very insightful.
We hope to see you and be sure to Tweet us while you’re there!
