Let’s face it – we all have our own personal favorite social media website. Some prefer Twitter, while others prefer Facebook, or LinkedIn. However, Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter has proven that his website is better than Facebook and Microsoft combined. How exactly did he do that? Simple, by donating more than them for Coronavirus relief!
Jack Dorsey moves $1 billion for Coronavirus relief!
Yes, you read that right. That’s billion with a B! Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter pledged to 28% of his entire wealth for global COVID-19 relief. He went on Twitter to make the announcement, and in fact, tried to keep it as transparent as possible. He did that by tracking the flow of that pledged money and making it available to the public.

Moreover, Jack announced that his donation will not end with the pandemic. He’ll continue to invest further in girls’ health, education, and UBI. This is quite a massive pledge, and if you want to read further about it, read his thread on Twitter:
I’m moving $1B of my Square equity (~28% of my wealth) to #startsmall LLC to fund global COVID-19 relief. After we disarm this pandemic, the focus will shift to girl’s health and education, and UBI. It will operate transparently, all flows tracked here: https://t.co/hVkUczDQmz

Not just that, but Jack Dorsey received a lot of praise from Malala Yousafzai too underneath this tweet. As we all know, Malala is a global advocate for girls’ education and that is a big endorsement for Twitter’s Jack. However, it also puts him quite ahead of Facebook and Microsoft too.
Zuckerberg and Gates need to catch up
As we discussed before, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg received a lot of criticism recently. It was because of their combined $25 million donations for Coronavirus relief. Now, when we compare this to what Jack Dorsey has pledged, it doesn’t even compare! And not just that, but those two combined have a net worth 50 times more than the CEO of Twitter.
In this hour of need, billionaires like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg must step up and donate to the people. For that, they can look at Jack Dorsey. Because for now, it looks like Twitter really has outshone both Microsoft and Facebook.
