Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Doesn ‘ t Own A Laptop, Explains His Reason!

Twitter is currently one of the most popular social media platform, which is growing at a very fast pace. Whether you want to know the daily updates about what’s happening around you or some jokes, Twitter offers everything. We even find out news faster on Twitter than the news outlet.

However, when we think of Twitter, we would definitely think that the company’s top leader would be sitting in front of the computer and laptop and doing their dealings. But, will you believe us if we tell you that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey doesn’t use a laptop at all. Yes, you read it right, he doesn’t own a laptop.

If you don’t believe us, believe the man himself. Recently during a press breakfast in Sydney, Australia, Twitter CEO revealed this shocking fact about himself. When he was asked about his own online security practices, he said to Deb Knight,

“I don’t have a laptop, no, I do everything on my phone.”

He further added,

“It was important to me because I turn off my notifications, and for me it’s one application at a time. So I just have one app up, and I can really focus on what’s in front of me instead of everything coming at me as I would a laptop.”

Jack further elaborates how he balances his daily work and life without using a laptop. He does everything on his smartphones. Talking about life and security, he added,

“I think anything can consume all of your time, but definitely the devices we have just have so much on them, so much interestingness, and you can certainly go down a hole. So I’ve developed a lot of personal practices: I don’t check my phone in the morning until I’m about to walk into work and when I’m working on my phone I turn off notifications so I’m not constantly reacting to what’s coming at me.”

He further elaborated,

“When we’re having meetings, phones down, laptops closed so we can actually focus and not just spend an hour together but make that time meaningful — and if that time is 15 minutes, then it’s 15 minutes, we move on with our lives. If we have our phones open, if we have our laptops open, and all these things are coming up, we just get distracted.”

Privacy and security have become a very tough task in the growing age of digitalization. In order to cope with it, Jack Dorsey talks about the awareness about the privacy and security. He said,

“In terms of privacy and security, I think the most important thing is that you’re mindful of it. That you’re aware of it, that you are aware of the tools at your disposal to understand what data a company or service has on you, that there are controls to turn that off. That you have two-factor authentication turned on all of your accounts, that you change your passwords on a regular basis — I know it’s a pain but it’s extremely important.”

That’s awesome, isn’t it?
