Right in the center of South Park, a large, grassy oval near San Francisco’s financial district, there is a rinky-dink playground with slides, ladders and firefighter poles, all dented and dinged, connected by gritty brown pylons!!!
Yet for many in Silicon Valley, this playground is hallowed ground.
It was here, one breezy day in 2006, according to legend, that Jack Dorsey ordered burritos with two co-workers, scaled a slide and, in a black sweater and green beanie, like a geeked-out Moses on Mount Sinai, presented his idea for an Internet service that would allow users to update their current status and share what they were doing.
JACK DORSEY said;
“That playground right up there is where I first brought up the idea.”
"The idea for TWITTER?” the interviewer asked him.
"Yep,” Dorsey replied.
Writer NICK BILTON details how a vague idea became a multi-national, multi-billion dollar business in the Cover Story, The SAVAGE DAWN Of TWITTER, for the new issue of the NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE
