A history of Twitter – and thoughts on what really matters – from Dom Sagolla – author of 140 Characters – A Style Guide for the Short Form.

Recorded via Twitter on May 21, 2013 at the #NCMG meeting in Silicon Valley.

  1. 3 Principles: Simplicity, Constraint, Craftsmanship led to creation of #Twitter says @Dom at #NCMG pic.twitter.com/GKtMLSASlq
  2. #Twitter won #Hackathon at #SXSW – was their break. #NCMG @Dom: opened the eye to real-time Internet 4 many
  3. Originally, #Twitter had no 140 character limit. Turns out: It is a human cognitive limit & limit of human relationships #NCMG @Dom – wow
  4. The name of the game is authenticity, human emotion, passion; @Dom. #NCMG

    Well, Congratulation Natascha!
    I bet that was a good experience.
    Very Importants bullets,but I like number 8 , about “It’s about quality & engagement not quantity”…
    And this is very important: “The name of the game is authenticity, human emotion, passion..”
    I’d add that once again came to the conclusion that although the technology advances more and more, it is our duty to humanize,the contents.
    Great Post and Share it..Natascha!
    Namaste!

      JC:

      the best part was that Dom is such an optimistic person who seems to truly want to make a difference.
      He said that sometimes people read one thing that changes their lives….I believe that too.

      Thanks for commenting,

      Natascha
