Your term 'leaked' documents I think refers to the Twitter emails that were illegally hacked (ie, stolen) from their servers? Could you please clarify your terminology so as to not potentially misrepresent the original source?

The same thing is happening here in the good ol' USofA with the Obama Administration using the EPA, NLRB, DHS blanket purchases and other highly questionable means to shut down businesses of all types that he personally disagrees with. Free enterprise is anything but anymore.

@alimomen Teens are simply the testbed, as were college students for FB. Forget about the current use case for a second and think more about the concept of limiting the shelf life on mobile/online posts. That was a discussion point a while back of a panel featuring Barry Eggers of Lightspeed Ventures, Snapchat investor. I can't comment much on the valuation expect to say that when you have as much money as Zuck, you can afford to throw it around like bread crumbs. ps. Teens buy a ton of movie tickets, sugary and/or caffeinated soft drinks, clothes, music and unfortunately drugs.

How special offers that expire in 10 seconds? Every coupon I've ever seen has an expiry date. I think everyone is too short sighted on this. Snapchat is perfect for this buy now, terminally ADD culture. Stay tuned all you naysayers.......

I guess we need to coin a new adjective for entrepreneurs. How about Bilton approved entrepreneurs and non-Bilton approved entrepreneurs? It is long past time to defer to the New York elitist community for validation. I guess Silicon Valley is all growed up now thanks to the incredible insight of Nick Bilton.

Barack Nobel Obama. With an approval rating going south, I'd say only about 42% of America's credibility is on the line, and sinking.

This is a brilliant post and you are very lucky (or good, or both) to have been able to shadow Aaron on an actual sales call. I've been watching Aaron and Box for upwards of three years now and seeing him very rapidly mature before our eyes, but mostly on stage watching his pitches at successive BoxWorks events, or other signature keynotes at MobileBeat, etc. One of the smartest things he did was hire Dan Levin to be COO, not just for the proverbial adult supervision but as a highly skilled and experienced ops guy who had a track record in scaling a B2B company. I really think we are witnessing the next Larry Ellison, not the asshole we all know and hate, but a nice one. Aaron is truly special and so much fun to have in our midst.

Revolution long overdue. There are many ways to revolt without violence. It's time to crowdsource a revolution.

The government knows best Bryan. You would be well served to get on board, with all the other spoon-fed lemmings, and stop your rabble rousing. However true your comments may be, the truth means little anymore.

I've met two of the 'kids' in the Thiel Fellowship program, one who dropped out of school after his freshman year. These kids are some of the best and brightest I've seen and will learn so much more through programs like this. I'm keeping my eye on this, Draper University and Singularity University as an exciting and promising alternative to the legacy path we used to call 'formal education'.
