Today, more and more social media and Internet applications and platforms are being launched every day, but few have managed to achieve the level of cultural saturation that micro blogging platform Twitter has. As one of the founders of Twitter, Jack Dorsey has found himself to be a popular businessman who was even included among the prestigious Time 100 list.
Born in Saint Louis, Missouri, Jack Dorsey exhibited a strong degree of knowledge in software design from an early age. By the young age of just 13, he had already created an open source dispatch software that remains in practice today for many taxicab companies. With his interest in software design, specifically in the realm of open source programming, Jack Dorsey appearances began taking place at New York University, which he claims is where the idea of Twitter was initially born.
That background in dispatch software design ultimately led Jack Dorsey to the project that was to be Twitter when he considered the idea of merging dispatches with AOL Instant Messaging and the blogging platform Live Journal. Along with Biz Stone and Evan Williams, Jack Dorsey appearances at Twitter helped launch the company and create a prototype of the micro blogging platform in just two weeks. First as chief executive officer, Jack Dorsey evolved to chairman of the board and now executive chairman.
