Twitter To Hire Like Crazy, Finally Build A Real Business

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo got the top job about a month and a half ago. Since then, he’s been working on the humongous deal the company announced yesterday, a $200 million investment from Kleiner Perkins and others at a $3.7 billion valuation.

Hope Dick knows that was the easy part.

Here’s what he has to do next:

Build a team. The noise we’re hearing out of Twitter is that former CEO Ev Williams‘s “people” are eying the door. Already, Ev’s product guy, Jason Goldman quit this month. Dick’s next big job will be hiring a staff of senior people who can help him figure out a product and business strategy for Twitter going forward – and then execute it.
