At its heart, Twitter is the simplest of products, but these days, the company’s product head Michael Sippey oversees all sorts of things: search and relevance, discovery, and new forays into short-form video and music.
Speaking at our D:Dive Into Mobile conference in April, Sippey noted that his world is a mobile one.
“Product at Twitter means mobile at Twitter,” Sippey said. “It’s all I think about and it’s all the team I work with thinks about. We started seven years ago as a mobile company, the service was initially SMS; we complemented that with a website that has attracted a lot of users; and the now shift has happened, the majority of our usage comes from mobile devices.”
While Twitter works to provide consistency across its core apps, it’s also finding new ways to shake things up. Sippey’s chat with AllThingsD’s Peter Kafka focused largely on Vine, the six-second-video app that Twitter bought last year before it had even launched, and has quickly soared to the top of the app charts since launching in January.
Vine, which is popular all over the world, hasn’t fallen out of the top five U.S. iOS app downloads since the beginning of April, according to App Annie.
During that time, the Twitter app (which, to be fair, many people already downloaded in the past) has hovered between No. 25 and No. 50.
Finding Vine — and bringing it to where it is now — is definitely something to gloat about. Sippey said he and Twitter CEO Dick Costolo jumped on the deal after Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey saw the product and fell in love with it.
“We saw this and said, they’ve solved this problem in a really interesting and compelling way,” Sippey recalled, noting that Vine includes neither a record button or a play button.
“The beauty of what the team did, is they took advantage of the fundamental unit of filmmaking, which is the cut, and integrated that into the product so that you can actually tell stories, pretty sophisticated stories within a six-second time frame,” Sippey explained.
“And then they made it really simple to consume them, so it’s a simple follow model, and with the trending hashtags and the explore section, you can actually find great people and find great content and just scroll through and enjoy Vine after Vine after Vine.”

Ghost, an open-source blogging platform that hopes to shake up the personal publishing space, is nearing the end of its Kickstarter journey.
Almost a month ago, Ghost launched with what seemed like an audacious goal: Raise £25,000 to help create a new web platform dedicated to publishing. To date, the project has raised £150,000 (that's $226,000 in U.S. dollars), and it has a shot at making its £250,000 stretch goal.
So what is it about Ghost that has resonated with users, developers and writers?
I spent some time talking with John O'Nolan, the founder and project leader of Ghost, about Kickstarter, open-source software and the future of publishing. Read moreMore about Wordpress, Tumblr, Blogging Platform, Kickstarter, and Tech
Remember that episode of Friends when Ross be-bops his way around a black-lit dance club with his glowing smile as the center of attention (and the butt of all the jokes)? That slightly irrational fear has kept me from whitening my own teeth, but beauty experts all stress how a bright smile contributes to maintaining your youthful looks. So, as I approach 30, I'm finally succumbing to the idea of brightening up my chompers. True to Jessie form, I've researched and experimented with a handful of different ways to de-stain and whiten teeth in order to find the best options. And naturally, I just had to share my findings with you here. Ahead, my three picks on how to whiten your teeth before it's time for dentures. Arm & Hammer Baking Soda, $6.60, available at Soap.com. I always like to try natural versions of a treatment before relying on something chemical-based, and one of the first things I tried was the long-standing remedy of brushing with baking soda. At first, I assumed that it was an old wives' tale, but after hearing so many positive accounts, I decided to give it a go for one week. I mixed a teaspoon of baking soda with water and brushed with the paste twice a day, and noticed a subtle brightening. The best part? I already had a box of soda in the fridge, so it cost me literally nothing. Rembrandt Intense Stain Dissolving Strips, $22.99, available at Rembrandt. I tried these back during my college days, and while I remembered them working quite well, I hated how look it took and the sensitivity they left behind. But once I saw what a difference baking soda made in my overall look, I thought whitening strips might be worth another stab. So, I tried Rembrandt Intense Stain Dissolving Strips. While I whiled away the short 10 minutes, I tried to not annoy my husband by lisping through my sentences. When I went back into the bathroom to do a quick rinse and check out the results, I was totally blown away at the difference after only one strip. Bonus: They dissolve during use and taste quite nice! I used it three more times that week, every other day, and experienced zero sensitivity. I actually had to stop myself from continuing in fear that I really would overdo it like Ross. Your dentist's teeth-whitening technology Thankfully, I never needed to move on to this step, but if your stains are more than surface-level-deep, you may want to explore having the procedure done at your dentist's office. My editor tried this route using Zoom, the latest in LED technology by Philips. And, while it will cost you, she was beyond ecstatic with the results. Her enamel hue brightened by three shades. Plus, it only took 45 minutes. Alright, now it's your turn to dish: Have you whitened your teeth before? You've got to share what did or didn't work here in the comments, and I'd love to know what other methods I might've missed!
