The Cycle

I Want Media published a Q&A with Jack Dorsey, Twitter co-founder and CEO on Monday.

Among its highlights, Dorsey, who says that Barack Obama is his most high-profile user, comments that he doesn’t believe his free service will ever replace blogging or traditional journalism, but complements them well.

“Twitter provides a great man-on-the-street account of what’s happening right now. The minute the Los Angeles earthquake struck [in July 2008] there was an update on Twitter, which was followed by thousands of more updates, until nine minutes later the first reports came out on the AP wire,” he says. “Twitter is very good at immediacy.”
