Twitter CEO: Build it and money will comeOctober 22, 2009: 4:58 PM ET
"We are spending our time trying to create the best technology and product for as many users as possible. That's where all our value is going to come from."
--Twitter CEO Evan Williams in "Twitter hits tweenhood" in the new issue of Fortune, on newsstands next week and Fortune.com today. Having attracted more than $150 million in venture capital (and 55 million unique visitors monthly), Twitter has outpaced Google (GOOG) in money-raising...with meaningless revenues to show for it. But for this feat and for quickly building the communications platform into a global phenomenon, Fortune puts Williams and co-founder Biz Stone at No. 5 on its just-released 40 Under 40 list.
