Never mind that a wise man once said, “Money is the root of all evil.” There is little question that the most recent financial crisis was caused by a number of reasons but topping that list is simple greed. While there have certainly been a number of wars fought over religion, the bulk of all wars are rooted in money. Apparently, if Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR)’s vice president of the company’s products is to be believed, the human condition that is driven by rapine greed and the quest for money doesn’t exist at Twitter.
Twitter’s Michael Sippey says company focused elsewhere
Michael Sippey seems to mean this despite the fact that it just can’t be the case. Describing the day that Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) went public making instant millionaires out of numerous employees, it was simply business as usual. When specifically waxing silly he said, “People don’t care about it. I don’t care.”
“Reaching everybody on the planet — that’s what brings everybody in today,” he said. “The market invests in the future of the company. That’s what we’re focused on,” he continued.
So people will go to war for money, nearly crash the global economy for money, but they don’t go to work for money? Interesting.
For the record, I’m also writing this for truly altruistic purposes and have now added articles about Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) to stories of Bill and Melinda Gates’ philanthropy as articles that I will no longer bill the owner of this site for my words. I also have a few bridges in the New York area for sale if anyone is interested.
Sippey’s comments difficult to believe
While Twitter certainly faces challenges from Snapchat, Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) and others, suggesting that Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) employees don’t care about the stock price of Twitter is like saying Paula Dean likes black people and doesn’t need Crisco to cook.
Taking a break from Sippey’s nonsense, he did have a few worthwhile things to say about Google Glass in the same interview. Twitter, of course, has already begun work on its Glass app.
“I think they have a bunch of work to do,” he said of Google Glass, “A lot of people will have to figure out the social dynamics of how to have a heads-up display while talking to people.”
Now if they could only develop a heads-up-display for trite balderdash spewed by Twitter VPs.
