TWITTER CEO JACK DORSEY: Twitter Lacked ‘Focus And Discipline’ For Growth.
On Wednesday, Dorsey offered some insight into the source of Twitter’s user growth problem, which has haunted the company for years.

Just last week Dorsey introduced a new anti-abuse feature so poorly thought out that it actually created a new avenue for abuse, and was quickly removed.
