Shervin Pishevar And His 21-Hour Tweet Storm

Shervin Pishevar has long been a man of many elaborate words. Although he had to resign from Uber because of some highly public personal issues, he still has retained a heavy presence on Twitter. Last February, he literally went on a tweet storm binge: 50 messages, spread out over 21 hours, discussing everything from his predictions for the American economy, bonds, Bitcoin, immigration, and even SpaceX among many others.

Pishevar almost noted his beliefs that the Bitcoin crash wasn’t necessarily over yet.

Pishevar’s tweet storm also touched on the rise and fall of Bitcoin. He said he felt they’re crash wasn’t over with yet; he predicted that gold would rise and Bitcoin when go two around 2000 and price and then go up.

He also noted that Silicon Valley in California is losing more and more influence all the time.

Shervin Pishevar noted how he no longer believes that this innovation present in the state of California is beholden to a physical place. He feels that innovation can take many different forms. Of course, as an early investor in Uber, he would be well aware of some of the out-of-the-box thinking that is needed to be a successful startup in today’s economy. Along the same lines, Shervin Pishevar also noted the immense success of Elon Musk, currently of SpaceX fame. He feels that the United States will have to continue to adapt to be able to compete in the 21st century. Although he sees some progress in that regard, he feels more needs to be done.

Naturally, some were questioning this tweet storm by Pishevar. However, it is his insight and out of the box thinking that has always spawned the best companies. Judging from his personal experience, it will always remain that way.
