||Things a Little Bird Told Me delves into the creation of the worldwide phenomenon that is Twitter.

With anecdotes concerning his time at Google, the various start-ups he was involved in at the start of his career and his current project, Jelly, GQ’s ‘Nerd of the Year’ candidly unveils the journey that led him to becoming one of the most successful developers of a generation, and one of Time Magazine’s most influential people. He talks about manufacturing opportunity, abandoning linear thinking, the endlessness of creativity, and the values of empathy in this honest and fascinating account on creating a wonder of themodern world.
