Publisher's Summary

Since 2006, Twitter has grown from 100 obsessive users to more than 500 million today - over 32 million of those in the UK alone. But how did such a radical transformation happen in just five years, and what does it mean for business, politics and the internet?
With unprecedented access to some of the major players in this unique drama, acclaimed New York Times business and technology columnist Nick Bilton chronicles the key figures who helped build the company, and who ultimately struggled to manage the influence and power they had been handed.
A business story like no other, it will shock, inspire and expose. Or, in 140 characters, 'The Twitter Story: How a company built on betrayal & battles for power became a multibillion dollar business & accidentally changed the world.

Gripping story

The book is a very schocking account of the events of a service that changed the world. It is well narrated and keeps you gripped. The blue bird that made sharing news so easy and accessible to all to create a level stage for everyone is actually built on upheaval of betrayals and corporate coups. Shocking story!!!

Intriguing & dramatic

I enjoyed this book more than I expected. The history of Twitter and the insights into the startup were well researched and collated in this book. Normally it takes me a while to get through non-fiction books, but I was as drawn into this book as much as any fiction books I've enjoyed.

What made the experience of listening to Hatching Twitter the most enjoyable?

This was a fascinating read. I feel so bad for Noah Glass, and I wonder if Jack Dorsey is really as horrible a human being as he is portrayed as?
