Jack Dorsey Denies Forcing Out Noah Glass From Twitter

Posted Oct 14, 2013

The New York Times reporter Nick Bilton is releasing a new book called “Hatching Twitter: A True Story of Money, Power, Friendship and Betrayal.”  In the book, Twitter creator and co-founder Jack Dorsey suffers from the most criticism.  We pointed out that a chapter in the book focuses on Noah Glass being forced out by Dorsey.

Dorsey was able to tell his side of the story in a profile put together by The New Yorker.  The book says that Dorsey threatened to quit working at Twitter unless Noah Glass was forced out.

In The New Yorker article, Dorsey denied the claim that he threatened to quit.  He said “I didn?t give an ultimatum … I didn?t have that leverage. Ev made his decision.”

“Ev asked me, ‘Should we let Noah go?’ And I said, ‘I don?t think I can work with him in his current state,'” said Dorsey in the profile.

The book also points out that Dorsey left work early to pursue other hobbies like yoga and fashion.  Dorsey responded by saying that he always resumed working later in the evening.
