How Twitter Created Connections But Drove the Founders Apart

Friday, October 04, 2013 - 03:46 PM

As Twitter's lawyers prepare to take the company public, they aired some of the company's financial dirty laundry in a regulatory filing this week, confirming that the social media service continues to lose money.

For dirty laundry of a more personal nature, we can expect details in Nick Bilton's forthcoming book Hatching Twitter: A True Story of Money, Power, Friendship, and Betrayal.

New Tech City host Manoush Zomorodi spoke to the New York Times technology columnist about why none of Twitter's original founders continue to work at the company and how a service built on connections ended up driving four friends apart.
