Jack Dorsey, chief executive of Twitter Inc. and Square Inc., on Friday set some New Year’s resolutions for the two companies he heads after asking users what they want.
Drawing on responses to a tweet sent out Thursday, Dorsey narrowed down user requests for Twitter TWTR, -0.55% to four categories: abuse, edit, topics and interests and conversations. The requests for Twitter come after a year in which the company was dogged by rumors of a sale and criticized for failing to make improvements and for stalling user growth.
Dorsey said Twitter is planning for its next 10 years as a public company.
