Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes two of the most innovative and influential businessmen in the United States, as Twitter's Jack Dorsey and Starbuck's Howard Schultz join the program to share their philosophies on entrepreneurial spirit, and "Keeping America Great."
With details of their partnership being made official on Wednesday, it's revealed that the coffee boss will join forces with the micro-blogging wizard, using Dorsey's newest venture, a payment company called Square.
It has been just six years since the launch of Twitter, and though the technology has seemingly rewritten the book on social media, Dorsey admits to still perfecting the model:
"There have been a few incidents recently involving Twitter, where your sense of grown-up corporate responsibility has to kick in," says Piers Morgan, referring specifically to a journalist publishing an NBC executive's email address and subsequently having his Twitter account temporarily suspended. "You're so big, so powerful, the repercussions of what people do on Twitter, could have very lasting effects."
"The world took to it. It grew, and grew, and grew. And it grew extremely fast, and we've had to learn extremely fast as well," says Dorsey of the company that currently boasts 500 million users. "This is a learning moment, it's a learning opportunity. It's something that we spent a lot of time inside the company talking about, thinking about. But we always want to defend our users' voice. We always want to make sure that everyone has access to this technology."
Though he certainly has access, and now a partnership with the chairman, Schultz would be a likely candidate to take to Twitter. But that's not the case:
"Do you tweet?" Morgan asks the latte lynchpin, though he already knows the answer.
"I do not," Schultz laughs embarrassedly. "I have so much going on in my life, that I feel if I add one more thing...I just don't have the time."
Confident in his product, and new partner, Dorsey adds simply, "We'll get him on."
Watch the clip, listen to the interviews, then tune in this evening at 9 p.m. as the two corporate powerhouses share further details of their new venture and share their independent opinions on how to improve the economy in America.
