The “Town Square” in the Social Media Era: A Conversation with Twitter CEO Dick Costolo

Jonathan Rauch, Strobe Talbott, and Dick Costolo

On June 26, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings hosted a moderated discussion with Dick Costolo, CEO of Twitter, Inc. The conversation centered on Costolo’s vision for the company, as well as his views on freedom of expression and Twitter’s role in entertainment, politics, news and world events. Introduced by President of the Brookings Institution, Strobe Talbott, and moderated by Brookings Senior Fellow Jonathan Rauch, the discussion also focused on how Twitter is reshaping what Costolo terms the “global town square.”

With more than one billion Tweets sent out every two days, Twitter is revolutionizing modern communications and shaping discourse on public issues that range from NSA data-mining to same-sex marriage. What does the future hold for the company?
