Jack Dorsey On Twitter’s History, Its Future And Why He Wants To Be Mayor Of New York City [VIDEO]

Yesterday, Lara Logan interviewed Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey for 60 Minutes on CBS, and, for fans of Twitter, quite a few little gems were unearthed from the soft-spoken Dorsey, including his ambition to run for mayor of New York City.

Dorsey speaks about the history of Twitter, and his part therein – how he came up with the idea for the micro-blogging network, why he was kicked out of the company he started (and how that made him feel) and how he doesn’t hold grudges.

Perhaps the greatest revelation (although it never comes directly from Jack’s mouth) is the news that Dorsey, who ventured to New York when he was 19 and plans to move back to the city in the future, would like to run for mayor NYC. Of course, that takes a lot of money, but Dorsey is already a billionaire, and, let’s face it, stranger things have happened (and far less suitable folks have been elected) in the crazy world of politics. For what it’s worth, Dorsey says he’s serious about running.

Check the video below for the full interview.
