Ten years ago, Brian Acton was looking for a job.
His job at Yahoo had come to an end after 11 years. He was not sure what to do next, trying to find a new direction in life, going through sleepless nights and anxiety-filled days.
He was meeting VCs and doing networking.
networking with recruiters, venture capitalists, playing ultimate frisbee

He applied for a job at Twitter. Twitter said no.
Got denied by Twitter HQ. That's ok. Would have been a long commute.

Facebook said no as well.
Facebook turned me down. It was a great opportunity to connect with some fantastic people. Looking forward to life's next adventure.
