Twitter co-creator, Evan Henshaw-Plath was recently featured in Rebel Geeks Al Jazeera documentary

Evan Henshaw-Plath speakerOne of the original developers of Twitter, Evan Henshaw-Plath, was recently featured in a Rebel Geeks documentary series on Al Jazeera, where he shares his current mission as a tech activist. He believes his role is to promote social justice, and “empower civil society to influence politics through the use of software.”

Using his knowledge from the world of lean start-ups, Evan talks about taking these techniques to support the technology being developed by activist groups. The main goal of his work, is to allow people to truly have secure communications. Evan says, “Programmers are like digital superheroes. Everybody else gets to use the technology, the reality in which we play – but the programmers get to reshape the rules, the physics of our digital universe.”
