Jack Dorsey Details Twitter’s Blockchain Strategy at Oslo Freedom Forum | Nasdaq

When Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey spoke at the virtual Oslo Freedom Forum 2020 on Friday, he said blockchain technology is the future of Twitter. 

"Blockchain and bitcoin point to a future, point to a world, where content exists forever," Dorsey said. "We're not in the content hosting business anymore, we're in the discovery business.

In short, Dorsey expects the nonprofit Blue Sky to create an open Twitter protocol, which users can contribute to and access data from instead of a centralized service where the social media platform hosts content on its website.

A declaration that should pave the way for many others to follow. Blockchain offers so much to the marketer.
