About Jack Dorsey
Jack Dorsey (born November 19, 1976) is an American software architect and businessperson best known as the creator and co-founder of Twitter. He is also the CEO of Square, a service that enables anyone to accept credit cards anywhere.
He was recognized as one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people and was named an “outstanding innovator under the age of 35” by MIT’s Technology Review.
Dorsey founded together with Stone and Williams Twitter, Inc. As chief executive officer, Dorsey saw the startup through two rounds of funding by the venture capitalists who back the company. On 16 October 2008 Williams took over the role of CEO, and Dorsey became chairman of the board.
On March 2011 he tweeted that he is “thrilled to get back to work at Twitter´s leading product as Executive Chairman. On 28 of March he was in charge of this position.
How Dorsey will be able to hold down a top product gig at Twitter and be CEO of a fast-growing startup Square we will see in the future. Sources say: “Jack is amazing, he works from 5 or 6 am until midnight.”
