>> osgood: twitter, for the uninitiated is a way to transmit brief messages to people around the world, and this past week investors sent their own sort of message, putting up the opening price of twitter stock a full 60 percent in just the first two days of trading, why are so many people so bullish on twitter?
9:09 am
tracy smith takes a look now at our sunday morning cover story. >> reporter: at twitter san francisco headquarters, even the folks who didn't make millions in this past week's ipo are treated like they did. they get all the typically enviable do.com goodies, a flexe work environment, free gourmet meals and the knowledge they have helped change the way the world communicates. >> first of all, everybody can sit down. it is much easier to tweet from a seated position. >> president obama tweets, so does the pope, cbs news and just about every celebrity you can name. >> in case you don't tweet, it works something like this. on twitter, users can send messages through a global online network, any message as long as it is 140 characters or less, like this one. in two seconds your tweet goes out to everyone who is signed up to see it and they can send it on or retweet to all of their users and so on until your tweet makes its way around the twitter
9:10 am
network and the world, to be seen or answered by anyone, anyone. michael cippe is tweeter's product vp. >> tweet there you go. >> so that just went out to 17,800 followers. >> have you personally ever been surprised by the way someone has used twitter? >> i am always surprised to see people who are talking with one another that you would never expect to be talking with one another. >> like? >> like drake, canadian rapper drops a tweet that says the first million is the hardest, and pickens, the texas oil magnates replies the first billion is a heck of a lot harder. >> this is two people having a conversation on twitter. >> that is amazing. >> for you is it all about solving problems? >> yeah. >> jack dorsey cofounded twitter in 2006, when he and a few pals started sending messages to each other. >> your original tweets were a lot about what you were eating for lunch. >> yes, they were, and my mom
9:11 am
really appreciated that. she knew where i was at and she knew i was eating and she knew i was alive. before long, twitter took off and so did dorsey's profile although he has been accused of taking too much credit for what was really a group invention. >> what is your version of the creation? >> you know, there are so many -- i mean there are so many different stories it is not really the most important thing anymore. >> so would you say now i founded twitter or we founded twitter? >> it always has been we. >> it always has been we. >> yes. >> was that frustrating to you, though, to hear other people have different versions of the twitter creation? >> i mean, it is not -- it is not surprising, if we focus too much on that we are not going to move forward. >> the past is the past? >> the past is the past. the stories will be written. >> reporter: whatever the story, there is still a lot of room for growth. in a cbs news poll, only 16 percent of american adults age 18 and over say they use twitter. >> there are a lot of people out
9:12 am
there who i think are still skeptical who still think who cares about somebody telling me what they ate for lunch. >> and it is of course not all about that. there are always going to be people doing that, who are just here is my dinner. >> lance julio nevada is chief of the social media blog mashable. >> the moments that matter in twitter's lifespan when we are told about things that are happening in the real world and that is the position as a powerful news delivery service, for average people, people on the ground. >> or on the water. >> for example, remember the plane that bellied into the hudson in 2009? some of the first images were from a guy tweeting from a ferryboat. and the first pictures of the asiana crash in san francisco this year were tweeted by the passengers themselves. >> that, youring your lunch, is that inconsequential information? >> no. that is sort of life changing information. >> of course, twitter had its own life changing moment this past week, the company stock
9:13 am
price soared 73 percent in the first day of trading, but slid seven percent the next day. from wall street to twitter's headquarters on san francisco's market street, all eyes are on the numbers. >> and the numbers are staggering. according to twitter the company has over 230 million user who send around half a billion tweets every 24 hours, last year revenues shot up 198 percent to around $300 million, but an equally staggering number, their net profits so far are zero. >> reporter: the company says it will turn that around by selling more ads, called sponsored or promoted tweets like this one. >> twitter makes money through ads, as the ads pile up does that cheap pen the experience. >> i think it makes it better. you are giving a brand or an organization an opportunity to increase the number of people who might see their content, to see their message.
9:14 am
>> it is good for the advertiser but what about for the person on twitter who is reading all of these ads? >> well, they are contextual, so you see -- you see an ad, you see a promoted tweet within a stream, and it feels like it belongs there. it feels like it is part of the conversation. >> reporter: a and it is an open conversation, which means companies can sometimes get their message across without paying. like this oreo tweet during last year's super bowl blackout. >> boom, they put that out there and it explodes virally and twitter doesn't really have anything to do it with. >> they didn't pay for advertising rights. >> so that's the thing, twitters are completely open environment, it is not like television where, you know, the average user could suddenly show up on tv talking about something or small company couldn't show up and say hey, by the way check this thing out but twitter is like that. >> reporter: but as innovative as twitter may be the company has drawn fire for having an all male board of directors. he is general counsel. >> in the renal financial filing
9:15 am
you were the only female in the list of top twitter executives, does that concern you? >> it really doesn't, that was one snapshot of who we are as a company but doesn't tell the whole story, i am sure that will change, i am sure it will. >> did people tweet to you directly? did they use twitter to say hey why aren't there more women in twitter? >> absolutely, we got a lot of great feedback and suggestions of people who wanted to come here so it was an interesting dialogue and something we take very seriously and very important to us. >> reporter: another change crucial to twitter's survival, growing the number of people who use it, right now, facebook has four times as many, but insider like jack dorsey have high expectations. >> where do you see twitter ten years from now? >> we want to reach every single person on the planet. >> that's a lofty goal. >> i think it has the potential to do so. >> seriously? >> yeah. it provides, it does give you a sense of what is happening in the world, so i do, i do believe it has the potential to reach
9:16 am
those heights. >> reporter: okay. that could be overly optimistic, but maybe by giving us a new way to talk about a rapidly changing world, twitter has found a permanent place in it. >> you know what line it is on. >> osgood: next, remembering the fallen. >>

perot who contributed more than $160,000 of his own money to the project was one of the most outspoken. >> you have two choices start all over again or modify the design. >> have a look, everyone. >> osgood: over his objection it is design was modified, with the addition of a statue by frederick heart of three servicemen, one white, one african-american, and one hispanic, though at a slight distance from the memorial rather than at its apex as some had wanted. >> those early disagreements have faded with time, as the memorial has become one of the most visited monuments in washington. >> somewhat to her surprise. >> i guess i haven't seen how loved it would become, and yet at the same time, it doesn't forget the high price of war. >> osgood: and with all those names carved so permanently into stone, there is no way any of us can ever forget the sacrifice of
