Brain Dump 🧠 🗑️
This is a brain dump/collection of notes from David Perell and Mathew Kobahch's workshop a few months back. I noticed a bunch of people in the comments were asking for the link to notes from this near 2-hour conversation...so I decided to share my own! Enjoy 😇

Advanced Workshop: How To Use Twitter
Why is Twitter valuable?
- "Twitter is the most amazing networking and learning network ever built." - Bill Gurley
- "Twitter is great for writers, investors, and entrepreneurs because when you post your thoughts you get instant feedback that's more unfiltered than anything you'll get face to face." - Allison Allen
- On Twitter, you can build a network solely based on your clarity and quality of thought."
Why is VC (venture capitalist) Twitter so active?
- VC make money by having ideas other people don't have. VC's are trained to think like contrarians. On Twitter, it works to be just contrarian enough that you give people insight, but not enough that you bother people.
