10 things you didn’t know about Twitter
Last week, while I was in San Francisco for the Web 2.0 Expo, I spent a couple of hours at Twitter’s HQ with Twitter’s staff. Here are 10 fun pieces of Twitter trivia I discovered on my travels:
1. Twitter has its own DJ booth
Located in the centre of the office’s "breakout" space, it’s the place where celebrities come and "guest mix". The latest starlet was no other than Conan O’Brien, a US TV host and comedian, who then joined the host of other DJs and signed a cartoon version on himself on the Twitter wall of fame.
2. Tea time with Twitter
DJing usually goes on during the company’s weekly "tea time" session on Friday afternoons. It may sound very English and proper– but tea has long been replaced with beer to the soundtrack of someone jamming.
