    Twitter seems like a perfect start-up success story. In barely six years, a small group of young, ambitious programmers in Silicon Valley built an $11.5 billion business out of the ashes of a failed podcasting company. Today Twitter boasts more than 200 million active users and has affected business, politics, media, and other fields in innumerable ways.

    Story
    What did you love best about Hatching Twitter?

    The narration, the sequencing and the thorough investigative approach of the writer. I appreciate the Nick's detailed questioning of the surrounding when certain events happened, like the morning dew on the grass, when twitter exec were going after resolving one of their disputes or something


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Truth at every corner.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Of course, the whole sequence of first series of twits twitted among the employees.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Rather, I was a bit upset that such a book didn't really inspire anything. It's full of encounters of power struggle, manipulation and band-aids for problems in life. Growing pain is part of any organization but characters involved are really eccentric at times.


    Any additional comments?

    My criticism shouldn't be held against the author. This is a wonderfully written piece of art but the subject overall is very depressing.
