Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff: ‘Without Twitter, you wouldn’t have President-elect Trump’ - Recode

"“I think it’s a great company, I think it’s a great CEO. I think it has a huge vision and has a unique position in the world. As evidenced by this election, I think it’s more important than ever,” Benioff told Recode’s Kara Swisher at the Code Enterprise conference in San Francisco Tuesday night. “Without Twitter, I don’t think you would have President-elect Trump.”

Benioff was singing Twitter’s praises, but not until first explaining why he ultimately decided to pass on making a bid to acquire the social communications company last month. Benioff had looked hard at Twitter as a possible acquisition, and no-commented noisily for a few weeks about the potential deal before ultimately backing away from the idea altogether."
