Shervin Pishevar is a businessperson, investor, and profound Twitter account operator with some 91,000 followers. He’s known for investments in companies like Tumblr, Machine Zone, Warby Parker, and Uber. Mr. Pishevar has served Uber in the capacity of strategic advisor, observer of the board of directors, and general advisor, a stint running from 2013 to 2015 that he’s best known for.

He’s also known for his involvement in Virgin Hyperloop One, the world’s closest competitor to famous entrepreneur Elon Musk’s underground super-subway system called a hyperloop; Pishevar co-founded Hyperloop one with Brogan BamBrogan, which was later sold to Richard Branson’s Virgin Group in late 2017, just under a year ago at the time of press.

Now that you know Shervin Pishevar, it’s time to get to know his storm of tweets – a “tweetstorm” – from early February

Twitter users can only make so many consecutive tweets before they get temporarily suspended, or what’s also known as “Twitter jail.” As such – and also considering the nature of Twitter; users are encouraged to summarize their thoughts to 280 characters, and what used to be the tweet character limit of 140, or otherwise as short as possible – most people don’t spam their users with tens of tweets in near-rapid-fire succession.

However, this is what Shervin Pishevar did in early February upon revisiting his Twitter account following a two-month leave from the social media platform that began in December 2017 – and that tweetstorm was quite interesting.

Let’s get to it – covering the contents of the tweetstorm

With the first tweet, Pishevar’s tweetstorm predicted that the financial markets would drop 6,000 points. In just a month, the market dropped nearly 3,000 points. Close enough, right?

Shervin Pishevar also shared that Bitcoin’s price would continue to drop. At the time, it was worth just short of $9,000. He thought that it would drop to at least $5,000 per unit. Year-to-date, Shervin Pishevar’s prediction has come within $1,000 of coming true.

Lastly, Pishevar’s 50-tweet barrage shared his opinion that the barriers Silicon Valley – the Mecca of tech business – had expanded across the globe thanks to the power of the World Wide Web.

The Role of Eva Moskowitz in Education

Eva Moskowitz holds a BA in History from the University of Pennsylvania. She also attended John Hopkins University where she got her PHD in American History. She noticed a problem in the education sector when still in high school. According to her, the teachers did not teach and the students did not learn much from their teachers. There was also a lot of cheating which made the exams almost irrelevant. Eva felt sad that even the principal could not take care of such matters.

Between 1989 and 1990, Eva Moskowitz was a professor at the University of Virginia. She was teaching women’s history. She was also an assistant professor teaching history at the University of Vanderbilt. She also taught at the City University of New York. Between 1996 and 1999, she was at Columbia University. Here, she was the chair of the faculty seminar which focused on American Studies. At the Prep and Prep school, she taught civics and was in charge of public affairs.

Eva Moskowitz decided to bring some change to the education sector in America. She began by running for public office. Eva was the chair of the education committee. She hoped that with her position, she could impact positively on education. With time, Eva realized that she could not do much from there. In 2006, she founded a charter school, Success Academy, which caters for the educational needs of vulnerable children.

Eva Moskowitz said that her ideas mostly came from being a mother. According to her, there are many things that make children succeed in their studies. The younger children for instance need several breaks between studies. Eva understands that this keeps school interesting for them. Her strategies have proven to be successful. With 11,000 students in her schools, the general performance is higher than that of other schools.
