Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey is in Australia.

He’s been learning about the local culture.

Testing the platform’s new 12-character limit.

And he’s already a Vivid fan.

And today, Twitter Australia hosted a breakfast pitched as a “conversation on empowering Australians” for around 60 invited guests from industry and the media.

One morsel Dorsey revealed is that he doesn’t have a laptop – he’s a phone only guy.

The guests were invited to ask the CEO questions, except no one spoke to him. They had to submit questions to the Twitter boss via his platform.

Which explains this #inthemoment photo: the actual founder is there in the room, and half the room is staring at their phones.
