Twitter CEO Evan Williams speaks to NDTV
The full transcript of NDTV’s exclusive interview with Evan Williams, Twitter’s Co-Founder at their headquarters in San Francisco.
NDTV: It’s a word on everybody’s lips. You can hardly pick up a newspaper or a magazine without somebody talking about Twitter and we are very pleased to have its CEO Evan Williams join us.
Evan, first and foremost, why the name Twitter? In hindsight considering how big it has become it sounds almost flippant.
Evan: We chose the name twitter because it means communication between birds, which is why birds are also on our branding and our logo. It started as a very simple way for people to communicate and it seemed like a light and simple term that reflected the nature of the service.
