In an interview with Twitter’s two founders, Biz Stone and Evan Williams, New York Times’ Maureen Dowd being with a terrible pun on the medium by asking that all their answers be 140 characters or less. But then she keeps her stride with gem after gem like this:
ME: Was there anything in your childhood that led you to want to destroy civilization as we know it?
BIZ: You mean enhance civilization, make it even better?
Stone and Williams school her throughout the entire interview. Frankly, I’m impressed Stone stuck it out instead of walking out.

“When everybody starts hovering over me, I get gross, then sad, and finally end up turning my heart inside out, the bad part on the outside and the good part on the inside, and keep trying to find a way to become what I’d like to be and what I could be if…if only there were no other people in the world.”—Anne Frank
