Google's 'business founder' is going to try to save Twitter
He was also one of Google's earliest employees, joining the company in 1999 as its "business founder" just one year after Larry Page and Sergey Brin founded it. He essentially built Google's business operations from scratch.Based on Dorsey's tweets, it sounds like Kordestani will "coach" him and the rest of the company's leadership.
