Twitter CEO Wants To Move To Africa, Which Will “Define The Future”

by FariedaDecember 4, 2019

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey plans to move to Africa next year for three to six months, he said after a month-long trip to entrepreneurial hubs on the continent.

“Sad to be leaving the continent…for now,” Dorsey tweeted. “Africa will define the future (especially the bitcoin one!). Not sure where yet, but I’ll be living here for 3-6 months mid 2020. Grateful I was able to experience a small part.”

He has spent the month of November visiting entrepreneurs in Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, and South Africa.

The bearded CEO posted a number of selfies with various groups of young entrprenerus he met, including one with “inventors in #Ethiopia”, where he praised their efforts for “smart beehive, nutrient rich hydroplant system, blockchain voting, contractions monitoring system, recycled bags into shoe polish, and postpartum hemorrhaging [sic] detection”.
