Twitter’s Dick Costolo was an improv comedian, and this speech shows.
Dick Costolo, CEO of Twitter, gave a commencement speech at the University of Michigan where he graduated, and it’s a mixed bag of wisdom, wit and encouragement.
He started off by tweeting a photo from his vantage point, and then went into his experiences, first with improv, and then with Twitter, citing some of the impact and milestones Twitter had over the years.

He talks about living for the now, and how we should not plan too much, because “Not only can you not plan the impact you’re going to have, you often won’t recognize it even while you’re having it.”
He talks instead, about making bold choices, particularly with finding your passion, and working toward that.
In a nutshell, it’s really an awesome speech. Watch.
