In 2006 Dominic Sagolla changed the future of online communication when he helped create Twitter. Three years later he released his first book 140 CHARACTERS: Style Guide for Short Form. Sagolla took Hemingway’s simple prose to the next level, demonstrating the effectiveness of well-written short sentences in the digital age. We can see evidence of the power of this short form throughout internet social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
Co-creator of Twitter, Dom Sagolla has also contributed to Macromedia Studio, Adobe Creative Suite, and many influential apps such as the Official Obama '08 iPhone App. Co-founder of the world's most prolific hackathon, iOSDevCamp, Dom has advised mega-hits like GetAround, FoodSpotting, Tapulous (now Disney), Small Society (now Wal-Mart Labs), and Square.
Dr. Sagolla was first recognized as an International Genius by the City of Amsterdam for his career and leadership in the technology industry. Based in San Francisco, he operates the agile software studio DollarApp and advises businesses of all sizes on product development, marketing, and launch strategy.
Dom's first book, 140 CHARACTERS, includes a foreword by Jack Dorsey, Creator and Chairman of Twitter, Inc. The book was released simultaneously as an interactive iPhone application (with full text) and in print & e-book form by John Wiley & Sons.
A graduate of Swarthmore College and Harvard University, Dr. Sagolla earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature with a minor in Computer Science, a Master of Education in Cognitive Science, as well as a Doctorate of Humane Letters from Becker College.
