Twitter

A PRODUCT SO SIMPLE, YET SO POWERFUL IT CREATED A NEW KIND OF MEDIA.

We came to Twitter first through our love as users, and then reached out to Biz Stone, then Evan Williams and Jack Dorsey. We made our initial investment in Twitter in 2008, when they were just 15 employees. In those early days of the firm, we knew this was the type of consumer web product we wanted to play some role in and we’re so thankful they took a chance on us as investors. Twitter had its initial public offering (IPO) on November 7, 2013.

Yes, I’m proud to be an early shareholder in this magical company as they go public today. But I’m also beyond proud and grateful to be a member of this Twitter community. It has given me so much by connecting me to the ones I love and things that inform and delight me every single day.

Congratulations Twitter. You changed the world
