Hatching Twitter (Twitter)

On the surface, origin stories of how social networks and tech companies came to be might seem boring on film. However, throw in vicious spats and backstabbing, as well as sensual scenes and you get a commercial blockbuster.

In light of Facebook and Apple Inc’s beginnings that were immortalised in their respective films, “The Social Network” and “Jobs”, social networking site Twitter seems to be heading down the same Hollywood path. Written by tech journalist Nick Bilton, “Hatching Twitter: A True Story of Money, Power, Friendship and Betrayal”, looks set be adapted in the near future as a television movie.
