Lots of great things said by Dick, I love that Twitter has no exit strategy, they are truly going for a home run and will be up there one day with the Facebook's on the public market. I'm saving my money for buying both of their stocks, hopefully in 2012 or 2013.

Thanks for sharing this Bambi, very informative coming from such an important CEO.
