Two words you don't often hear a CEO say about their own company: "We suck."
That's what Twitter CEO Dick Costolo had to say about his company, specifically referring to its seeming inability to deal with bullying and abuse on the site.
In response to a question on an internal Twitter forum, Costolo wrote this, which The Verge obtained: "We suck at dealing with abuse and trolls on the platform and we've sucked at it for years."
