[Twitter] Measuring Up at Life's Checkpoints
In the year he turned 35, Jack Dorsey held down CEO positions at both Twitter and Square. According to my blog history, I turned 30 years old five years ago. So that correspondingly means that today marked my hitting 35. When I got the somewhat congratulatory call from a high school best friend this morning, I asked what in the world could possibly be different at 35 than 34, aside from being qualified to run for president. He quickly said that when you hit 35, your back goes out. you become incontinent. so yeah, not great stuff. Bill Clinton had been governor of Arkansas for 3 years.
