Shervin Pishevar, an active angel investor, decided to take the Twitter world by storm in February of last year. After being quiet for quite some time on the social media platform, he decided to be heard. He announced that he had a few concerns he wanted to share. He, then, created what is best described as a tweet storm.
Shervin Pishevar sent 50 tweets. While this doesn’t sound like a lot to some, what makes it so surprising is that they were all sent within 24 hours. Each of them piggy-backed off of the previous one, ultimately creating an essay of sorts.
A number of topics were covered in the tweets. Shervin Pishevar wanted to talk about the economy, cryptocurrency, monopolies, the entrepreneurial spirit, and more.
These tweets have been read by tens of thousands of people at this point. Many blogs have decided to talk about Shervin Pishevar’s tweets, too. What got the attention is that many of his predictions have come true, including the 6000 point drop in aggregate on the stock market and the plummeting value of Bitcoin.
While Shervin pointed out all of the issues going on, he didn’t offer solutions. One thing is for sure, however. We need to strip the power of monopolies in order to get the entrepreneurial spirit back.
