Twitter co-founder says more techy leaders needed

NEW YORK (AP) — Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey thinks there needs to be more leaders who understand how to use technology.

Speaking at a New York City campaign event for a local political hopeful Wednesday, Dorsey said more leaders are needed who get technology and know how to use it.

He says technology can change governments, not just disrupt them.

The billionaire entrepreneur behind the popular social media service has hinted he may one day want to be mayor of New York. In an interview aired on CBS’ “60 Minutes” last month, correspondent Lara Logan said Dorsey is serious about moving to the Big Apple someday and running for mayor.

Dorsey did not take any questions after addressing the crowd that gathered in support of public advocate candidate Reshma Saujani (RUHSH’-muh sow-JAHN’-ee).
