The ultimate silver lining — Jack Dorsey gives a third of his shares back to Twitter employees

Twitter Founder

Christmas is coming early for what’s left of Twitter’s workforce — those who survived the slashing of 8 percent of the employee base have now been rewarded with a third of CEO Jack Dorsey’s stock, valued at around $200 million. Talk about a silver lining.

In a tweet Thursday evening, the social media co-founder, ex-CEO, and current CEO announced that he would be reinvesting “directly in our people” in a tweet that has now been favorited over 5,000 times.
