The “Town Square” in the Social Media Era: A Conversation with Twitter CEO Dick Costolo
June 26, 2013

“The ability to track and monitor the moments within an event, either as they happen, or to catch up with them, Iike in DVR mode, is something we want to enhance.”
~ Dick Costolo, Twitter

“We want to make (the) experience (for example of following last night Texas filibuster) even better, curating the moments within the event, the media from it, and making it that much easier to navigate.”
~ Dick Costolo, Twitter

“Twitter has significantly deepened and broadened my reading habits.”
~ Strobe Talbott, Brookings Institution

“We are not going into the business (period!) of synthesizing, analyzing (…and) curating experiences on Twitter. We are going to be the platform that distributes this information that people want to talk about. The advantage for journalists, is in the synthesizing, analyzing (…and) curating around what is going on.”

~ Dick Costolo, Twitter

“Independent of what you are interested in, the domain experts can be found on Twitter.”
~ Dick Costolo, Twitter
