You could have the best tool, the fanciest gadget, the hottest widget, billboard or platform around, but the product itself doesn’t make up a great company. Great companies focus on people first. 

Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter, defines a set of six assumptions for all Twitter employees which are based on humility, openness, respect, equitable partnerships and holistic vision. 

  1. We don’t always know what’s going to happen.
  2. There are more smart people out there than in here.
  3. We will win if we do the right things for our users.
  4. The only deal worth doing is a win-win deal.
  5. Our co-workers are smart and they have good intentions.
  6. We can build a business, change the world and have fun.Twitter
