A history of Twitter - and thoughts on what really matters - from Dom Sagolla - author of 140 Characters - A Style Guide for the Short Form.

As appropriate for the occasion, all information has been recorded via Twitter (on May 21, 2013) at the #NCMG meeting in Silicon Valley.

>> What impressed me the most was how much Dom seems to care about connecting people and helping them find what can make a positive difference to their lives. He said that maybe it is just one thing that you read that has a huge impact and changes your path. I subscribe to that.

  1. 3 Principles: Simplicity, Constraint, Craftsmanship led to creation of #Twitter says @Dom at #NCMG pic.twitter.com/GKtMLSASlq
  2. #Twitter won #Hackathon at #SXSW - was their break. #NCMG @Dom: opened the eye to real-time Internet 4 many
  3. Originally, #Twitter had no 140 character limit. Turns out: It is a human cognitive limit & limit of human relationships #NCMG @Dom - wow
  4. The name of the game is authenticity, human emotion, passion; @Dom. #NCMG
