Twitter's launch on the stock market just made a small but select list of founders and investors very, very rich indeed. Some names you'll know, some you won't. To learn more about the Twitter IPO Player's Club members, check out our write ups:Evan WilliamsJack DorseyDick CostoloBiz StoneAdam Bain
...plus a few more folks you may be less familiar with like Peter Currie
Adam Bain is an interesting Twitter millionaire, with a family man reputation. He was formerly the president of the Audience Network and EVP of product and technology at Fox Interactive--and was at Fox Sports before that. At Twitter he's President of Global Revenue, which has likely been one of the most important roles on the run up to IPO as Twitter tells its revenue growth story and shows its plan to convert growing sales into profits. He's also a bit of a philanthropist, so maybe some of his new net worth will go into helping others.
Ev Williams is Twitter's famous cofounder. His stake is said to be worth over $1.5 billion at Twitter's offering price of $26. A successful entrepreneur he made a lot of money selling Blogger to Google, but he was actually pushed out at Twitter over alleged bad management skills!
Biz Stone, perhaps the most famous Twitter chap after Jack Dorsey, is a slightly mysterious figure at IPO--his absence from Twitter's S-1 form led to a lot of debate. But since he's no longer an officer of the company, and doesn't own more than 5% stock he didn't have to appear. Assuming he does own 5%, though, he may have made about $600 million at the stock's launch price.
These names are going to be in the media for a while, because a sudden income of millions, even billions of dollars, means you can have quite an ongoing impact on the world. Learn about them now!
