    Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter and Square, visited Apple headquarters on Tuesday to give a talk to employees, according to a report by Bloomberg.

    The billionaire's address at Apple is said to be one of several speakers talking to select Apple staff as part of an ongoing series.

    Dorsey reportedly spoke with employees from the marketing department, and while the address may highlight shared principles, it's not thought to be suggestive of a new collaboration between Dorsey's companies and Apple.
    As Bloomberg notes, Apple teased that Twitter would be one of the first companies to exploit its new Project Catalyst technology that makes it easier for developers to bring iPad applications to the Mac. Strictly speaking though, the Twitter app for iPhone and iPad is currently no more integrated than any other third-party iOS app.

    Apple's mobile OS did used to include built-in support for Twitter, but the integration was removed in 2017 with the release of iOS 11 -- perhaps in anticipation of Apple's upcoming privacy-focused login feature, Sign In with Apple. Twitter has since relied on iOS shared extensions just like all the other social networks it competes with.

    Dorsey supported Apple in its 2016 feud with the FBI over iPhone access.

    That said, Dorsey and Apple clearly enjoy a close bond, so maybe his association with the tech giant is one to watch for the future.

    Twitter should return to its roots and re-simplify their idea. The service is very messy now and I no longer care to understand all its complexities. They should also come up with a sensible solution to public conversions and threaded Tweet groups on its platform, to visually explain what we’re looking at without all the confusion. And I sometimes message companies and then cannot find my message, what’s up with that? That’s no good for anyone.

    I think Jack should worry about stopping the bots on twitter before giving speeches to The Apple Marketing Dept.

    One of the “bad guys” of Silicon Valley. Twitter has truly descended into a mess.

    All these companies really are of one mind set, the silicon valley bubble. All the emphasis on "security" is a bit of a distraction, when the biggest security concern to your account doesn't come from outside, but from within these companies cutting you off for violating their terms of services which is increasingly biased towards the views of the radical left.

    I hate the Twitter app. I don’t understand pinned tweets and threads and all of that. TweetBot is so simple. I also don’t get what order I’m seeing tweets in Lol. Too many promoted tweets too.

    Jack is an imbecile ruining a once very simple and handy service. Now it's moderated irregularly and with bias.

    Oh great influence, because what Apple needs is to have Russian troll bots in their services too.

    What alternate universe do you live in? The bias is most certainly in the opposite direction...

    Has Twitter changed much, if ANY, since Introduction ?

    To be fair, bias exists on all social media platforms, so this isn't a revelation.

    Dorsey’s botched management of Twitter and its ridiculously illogical interface is nothing to learn from.

    Jack Dorsey vacationed in Myanmar. You know, the same place his app is used for genocide. Hope he had fun at the retreat, though.

    His non-existent philanthropic efforts are shameful. Dudebro is about the accumulation of wealth and will one day leave this earth with Twitter, the toxic waste dump of the Internet, as his only legacy.

    He is the worst person in Silicon Valley, and the Apple campus is just a little bit more dirty/cursed by having had him on it.

    An app used for anything is NOT the fault of it's creator.
    The Bible practices all kinds of things that just doesn't make any logical sense yet it's not stopping printing presses from creating it, nor governments to allow churches to have land and not pay taxes or from people bible thumping.

    man you guys are reaching so far placing social inequalities, FUD, and other items completely out of the founder/owners control - which could happen with ANY product/service onto his shoulders as 'his fault'.

    Inaction when your app is used to facilitate murder is definitely the fault of its creator. Creators have a responsibility for their creations. To suggest otherwise is disingenuous at best.

    Imagine Jack Dorsey vacationing in Germany in 1942 and Tweeting nothing but missives on how serene and beautiful the countryside is. Maybe take 10 minutes out of your day to ask the local Jewish people what changes in the Twitter app might curtail their extermination? Except that he did this exact thing in Myanmar in 2018.

    Jack Dorsey donated to a campaign against a proposition for homeless relief in the city where Twitter doesn't pay any payroll tax. In a building surrounded by homeless people all day, every day.

    Benioff built a hospital. The Gates Foundation is trying to eliminate malaria (amongst other thing.) Craig Newmark quietly donates 10's of millions of dollars to worthy causes every year. Wealthy people have an obligation to give back, they have the means and people like Jack have more money than they can ever spend.

    I'd just like to see him do something good for once, something honest, something worthwhile. But instead he seems to go out of his way to be the worst version of the worst character from "Silicon Valley".

    Well said and I love this post. That said, at least to western world countries, inaction for what application you create that does not specifically cater to murder or harm to anyone, and is used by others in this regard is not legally binding. Hence why he’s not been brought up on charges.

    Not sure about your 2018 reference as I’ve not heard of it before. I no longer use twitter for some time now.
