    Dina's Bio:
    Whether I am helping a student take the next step after college, facilitating a career workshop or organizing group runs through the trails over the noon hour, I am always working, playing and living well in the great north woods. I came to Duluth and St. Scholastica four years ago. I adore the big city life and still love playing in it, but most of the time I am enjoying the woods and all the beautiful things northern Minnesota has to offer.

C.E.O. funny man


An emergency exit sign (with humor) at Twitter headquarters.

The C.E.O. of Twitter mania is a successful business mogul and a stand-up comedian! Dick Costolo graced the front page of the Sunday NY Times this week and some of the practices he incorporates into the corporate culture of Twitter would make almost anyone eager for an opportunity to work in world of tweet.

I’ve been hearing so much about the Silicon Valley the past year, I actually want to add it to my holiday bucket list. This is fun: According to Bilton at the Times, “Facebook employees can seem to be nerdy, hard-charging engineers – just like their C.E.O., Mr. Zuckerberg. Apple draws hipster designers who worship Steve Jobs. Twitter is full of class clowns and the popular kids – people like Mr. Costolo.”

Dick Costolo was a stand-up comedian years before becoming the chief at Twitter. He has been unafraid to buck convention as he guides the company toward a possible I.P.O.

Whether it is Tea Time or flash mobs, Twitter has captured the F in fun for employees. I also appreciate the loyalty to privacy the company has spared by allowing people the ability to opt out of being monitored with a feature called “do not track.”

Yesterday’s article enhanced my love for Twitter. I have so many real life stories about how tweets play out in the world of work. In fact, did you know that Twitter and Linkedin are great job searching tools? Register for the Linkedin workshop on Thursday, October 18. Space is limited so register today!
