Jack Dorsey blows my mind. That’s not a compliment or a criticism, he just blows my mind.

He’s Mr Two-hats; Mr CEO-of Square-and-interim-CEO-of-Twitter – and he had an interesting Friday. First, news broke that a Square IPO is finally in motion. You’d think that would be enough for one CEO, but Jack is a super-CEO and just a few hours later he was talking Twitter product development with Kim Kardashian…

Dorsey then told BuzzFeed via DM “I want us to question everything to make it better.” There’s no doubt Twitter needs product improvements, but he seems pretty involved for someone who’s just keeping the seat warm until a full-time CEO can be found.

He comes across like a man who’s engaged to one woman but still has a thing for his first love. He had a rocky relationship with that ex but they still see each other, and all their friends know they’re the couple that were destined to be together really.

“The course of true love never did run smooth,” and it never had the public markets to deal with.

So yes, Jack Dorsey blows my mind. He’s either a business superman who can juggle two jobs to perfection, or he’s just got the ability to charm company boards into letting him do what he wants.

Either, I suppose, is impressive.
