The inside life of one famous Berlin investor in 17 tweets


The following is Oliver Jung’s twitter feed. After close analysis, we still can’t discern his purpose, nor why he stopped at just 17 tweets. He has so many friends (see tweet #12, “talking to lukasz at the phone. He is my friend”), and apparently so much fun (see tweets #3, 6, and 10)… What gives?! We really wish more investors would use Twitter to tell their 402 followers that they’re reading a contract…


Enjoy each one like a truffle.
