Nick Bilton

Nick Bilton is Special Correspondent for Vanity Fair, where he writes about politics, technology, business, and culture, and a contributor at CNBC. He was also a columnist for The New York Times for almost a decade.

In his New York Times bestseller Hatching Twitter, Nick Bilton gave readers an astonishingly reported, riveting, and impeccably crafted story of the politics and power struggles behind the founding of Twitter. Now in AMERICAN KINGPIN: The Epic Hunt for the Dread Pirate Roberts, Creator of the Silk Road (Portfolio; 5/2/17) Bilton turns his remarkable talent for investigative journalism to the story of Ross Ulbricht, the notorious and enigmatic founder of a drug empire called Silk Road.

Bilton's columns and articles for The New York Times and Vanity Fair have led to investigations by the Federal Trade Commission, Department of Justice and Congress. In late-2011, Bilton began questioning the Federal Aviation Administration's arcane rules banning Kindles and iPads during takeoff and landing. His reporting helped push the F.A.A. to initiate a committee reviewing its rules.
