Most of us might think of Twitter as a place where little can be learned. We probably value it for the fact that it can entertain us and make us laugh, but few people would point to it as a source of education most of the time. Fortunately, there are people like Shervin Pishevar who can help to change that viewpoint one tweet at a time.
Shervin Pishevar, an early investor in AirBnb, takes to Twitter regularly to express his views on topics like the economy and how politics impact the economy. He likes to point out when he believes that people are making mistakes with their investments and a whole wide variety of other issues. That being said, Shervin Pishevar is also the kind of person who has experience making smart economic choices in his personal life. Therefore, his opinions should carry more weight than the average person’s on these topics.
In a recent tweet storm, Shervin Pishevar released fifty numbered tweets that went through point by point why he believes that the stock market is set up to fail in the near future. He also thinks that Bitcoin is not a safe haven like so many have hoped that it might be for them. Finally, he talks about how the American Dream has been exported so effectively at this point that many great inventions are now going to come from the shores of foreign lands rather than from our own country.
Shervin Pishevar said all of these things over a period of twenty-one hours on Twitter. He went through line by line why he feels the way that he does about each and every one of these things. He took a contrarian view on certain things simply because that is how he honestly feels about them. All in all, he made sure that there was no question in the minds of anyone who read his material about where he was on the question of so many of these issues. He wanted them all to know his positions, and now we all really do. It is so enlightening to read the thoughts of someone who has actually proven himself to be worth reading.
