Our guest is New York Times technology and business columnist Nick Bilton, who's just released his second book, Hatching Twitter: A True Story of Money, Power, Friendship and Betrayal. Nick shares the behind-the-scenes story of Twitter's founding that most people don't know, and he discusses the business, societal and human implications of the company.

Bilton's New York Times columns and articles have led to investigations by the Federal Trade Commission, Department of Justice and Congress. In 2011, he began questioning the FAA's rules banning Kindles and iPads during takeoff and landing. His reporting helped push the FAA to review its rules.
