Turkish businessperson buys Twitter founder Jack Dorsey’s first public message

Turkish businessperson buys Twitter founder Jack Dorsey’s first public message

The businessperson of Turkish descent, who this week bought Twitter founder Jack Dorsey’s first public message on the platform for $2.9 million (TL 24 million), has said he made a very wise investment, dubbing it a piece of human history.

“It’s a piece of human history in the form of a digital asset. Who knows what will be the price of the first tweet of human history 50 years from now,” Malaysia-based blockchain service Bridge Oracle CEO Sina Estavi told the BBC.

Estavi said he acquired the “Mona Lisa of the digital world,” comparing the 15-year-old tweet to Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci’s famous work of art.

The tweet – “just setting up my twttr” – was Dorsey’s first tweet, made on March 21, 2006.
