Chris Sacca— Chairman, Lowercase Capital
Hey @jack. Investors have long been obsessed with monthly active users (MAU) as the key to Twitter’s value. Which metrics do you use to track the health and growth of Twitter’s network and Twitter’s business and what are you seeing in those metrics that makes you optimistic about the future for users, partners, and investors?

@sacca what I care about is building daily utility. It’s the first thing people check when they wake up because they want to see the world, and the first place to people go when they have something to say or want to have a conversation. Everything happening in the world is on Twitter, and I want to make sure everyone can participate!


Elena— Account Manager
@jack At Square you built an internal dashboard. The tricky part is choosing the right data to track. What thought process do you use to determine what to track? What are top 3 data points at Square?

@elenaviena an admin dashboard is the first bit of code I wrote for Square. Critical we instrument the health of the service. Makes every decision that much easier. For Square it comes down to something pretty straightforward, which is around payments volume. We can derive every decision and insight from that.


Paul Stamatiou— Designer, Twitter
@Jack, how do you relax and de-stress outside of the office?

@stammy hi! Meditation, exercise, dinner with friends. Nothing too out of the ordinary.

Hi @jack, ?

– Seriously how do you manage working for both the companies, which are so different from each other, how do you maintain your focus, and retain creativity?
– What is the most important quality you look, when you hire?
– An advice you’d give to your 20yr self / Entrepreneurs?
– 5 apps you use on the daily basis.
– 5 books that inspire you most.
Thanks! ?

@iamdeveloper no fair asking 5 questions in 1! On hire question, I look for passion. Only thing that can’t be taught. Why Square? Why Twitter? If I hear passion for the purpose in the answer, then I look for leadership and skill. Passion and purpose and principles first though!
