It’s no news that Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, was in Nigeria. It’s also not news that he met with Nigerias emerging tech developers. What’s amazing was the life changing moment for one of the tech developers that attended the gathering.
Dara Oladosu is a Tech Developer and founder of Quoted Replies. Quoted Replies is a Twitter-based bot that helps users find quoted replies of tweets without having to go through the hassle of copying, pasting and searching for it. Dara built the bot in December 2018 after he stumbled on the ability to copy a tweet’s link and search Twitter for its quoted replies.
Kayvon Beykpour, a member of Twitter management, who was on the panel with Jack Dorsey, instantly made an offer to Dara asking him to join the company and help develop this feature as it was not originally on the app.
An extremely excited Dara accepted the offer.
