Ev told Jack he had to chill out” with the deluge of media he was doing. It’s bad for the company,” Ev said. It’s sending the wrong message.” Biz sat between them, watching like a spectator at a tennis match. But I invented Twitter,” Jack said. No, you didn’t invent Twitter,” Ev replied. I didn’t invent Twitter either. Neither did Biz. People don’t invent things on the Internet. They simply expand on an idea that already exists.”
Despite all the coverage of Twitter’s rise, Nick Bilton of The New York Times is the first journalist to tell the full storya gripping drama of betrayed friendships and highstakes power struggles. The four foundersEvan Williams, Biz Stone, Jack Dorsey, and Noah Glassmade a dizzyingly fast transition from ordinary engineers to wealthy celebrities. They fought each other bitterly for money, influence, publicity, and control as Twitter grew larger and more powerful. Ultimately they all lost their grip on it.
Bilton’s unprecedented access and exhaustive reporting have enabled him to write an intimate portrait of four friends who accidentally changed the world, and what they all learned along the way.
