Africa will define the future, I am relocating there in 2020 – Twitter CEO Jack

Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter and a mobile payment company called Square, has hinted that he could live between three and six months in Africa come 2020.

The 43-year-old tech executive was in different parts of the continent like Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Ethiopia in November, meeting with entrepreneurs and people leveraging on the use of technology for great change.

After he left the continent, he tweeted how sad it is to leave, adding that Africa will define the future, especially as regards to Bitcoin, the digital currency.

It should be noted that the Twitter CEO loves travelling and he was in Melbourne, Australia earlier in September and also in Myanmar in December 2018, to celebrate his birthday.

Another thing to know is that Jack is not the only tech big fish that has visited the continent. People like former Alibaba chairman, Jack Ma, and Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg have done so in recent past.

While Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former Nigeria’s minister, said she is glad he made the journey, some other people engaged his tweet, telling him where they think he should stay.
