“Is Twitter the end of my (long form journalist) business model… the end of concentration, is it ADD forever?”
~ Jonathan Rauch, Author  (“No” replied Dick Costolo)

“I don’t agree with the hypothesis that just because (tweets are) 140 characters and they are short, that they are distracting or causing us to not be thoughtful about things, etc…”

(Re: Question about  Instagram video) “People can do whatever they want to do. We are going to continue to look forward to a point on the horizon that we want to move towards. We have a very specific notion of where we want to go.”
~ Dick Costolo, Twitter

“Everyone in the company has heard me say ‘goals not competitors’ all the time.”
~ Dick Costolo, Twitter

“It is important to understand the competitive landscape in the context of where you want to go, but not let what those guys are doing drive what you are going to do.”
~ Dick Costolo, Twitter
