Jack Dorsey LIKES Google + Competition - Good for Twitter

Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey doesn't really seem too worried about competition from other social media like Google Plus and Facebook. In fact, Dorsey said Twitter's ability to discover things in real time is what sets it apart from other social media platforms.

"We definitely see social as just one part of what people do on Twitter," Dorsey said. "We think of it as an information utility and a communications network."
Dorsey pointed out the differences between the micro-blogging website and other social networks during the Digital Life Design  Conference in Munich, Germany.
When it comes to Twitter, Dorsey places emphasis on the words "public," "real time" and "simplicity," noting that the social network has always been about hosting public conversations in real time. Simply put, Twitter is also about discovering.
"It comes from a very blogging-centric mindshare," Dorsey said. "You need to compose, and you need to publish, and that goes out to the world, but the biggest value is discovering what's going on in your world in real time--opening up Twitter and figuring out the pulse of the planet."
