  • 11:15 – “I was at like 14K followers when I got banned, and what happened was I setup a Twitter account when I was like 9 or 10 years old because it was the cool thing everybody was starting Facebook at school, so I did one on Twitter and apparently you can’t create a Twitter account if you’re not at least 13 years old, but when I created it when I was 9 I lied about my age but you know how on your birthday on Twitter it shows a really cool thing when it has balloons and stuff and it’s really pretty and I was like yea I want that so it was dumb so I changed my actual date of birth and when they realized I was 9 years old when I created my account they banned me.”
  • 18:53 – “He lives in Mexico and he was talking about the power of building internet companies that make US dollars and then living in Mexico and paying one-quarter of what the US dollar rate is for rent and all your utilities and living expenses it’s an arbitrage opportunity to live like a king in Latin America.”
  • 27:08 – “That’s kind of my Twitter philosophy I use the most click baitey methods to get you to read my stuff but I make my stuff the best I can so it’s usually click baiting shit content I try to do hard clickbait, I’ll use the dirtiest techniques to get you to click on stuff but I’ll try to make the content the best I can because I believe you need to give people what they want in order to give them what they need and a lot of people fail Twitter and they go I’m posting so much value but nobody’s listening, like man look at this spread I put my soul into it but nobody’s listening and it’s because you’re leading like if you were to turn in a plate with steak and salad, you’re leading with salad so, of course, no one’s going to eat the salad so you turn it around if you lead with the sexy thing and eventually you’re going to give them what they need after.”
  • 36:15 – “The brightest minds of our generation in the world are figuring out how to get you to continue scrolling on apps, they’re not landing people on the moon, they’re not inventing cures for diseases, they’re figuring out how to get you to stay on the app longer and hit more scrolls.”
  • 48:15 – “The coolest thing about social media is money, I believe that deep down. Second coolest thing is you just get so much access to everybody and if you have an audience even though you may not be as competent because I’m not as competent as these guys but why am I on the same podcast as that guy because if you have a certain amount of clout on social media people are going to treat you differently.”
