Pick A Fight (on Twitter)

Basecamp CTO David Heinemeier Hansson is known for many things, including creating Ruby on Rails and writing business books. He also has strong opinions and likes to share them on the Internet! And sometimes DHH’s Twitter posts spark some lively debate, and by lively debate, we mean grown-ups yelling at each other in 140-character spurts.

In the latest episode of the Rework podcast, I interview DHH about how Twitter is like a virtual pillow to scream into and the role that extreme voices play in moving important conversations forward. We also relive some of his memorable Twitter melees, including the one that got him blocked by Paul Graham.
