Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey doesn’t have a laptop, and does all of this online work on his phone, he shared at a recent press breakfast. A news presenter asked about his personal online security methods, citing a photo of Mark Zuckerberg with tape over his webcam.

“I don’t have a laptop, no, I do everything on my phone. It was important to me because I turn off my notifications, and for me it’s one application at a time. So I just have one app up, and I can really focus on what’s in front of me instead of everything coming at me as I would a laptop,” said Dorsey. Instead of typing, he utilizes diction and other voice typing applications, but as a means for a healthy work balance as opposed to any sort of security.

“When we’re having meetings, phones down, laptops closed so we can actually focus and not just spend an hour together but make that time meaningful — and if that time is 15 minutes, then it’s 15 minutes, we move on with our lives. If we have our phones open, if we have our laptops open, and all these things are coming up, we just get distracted.”

In related news, Twitter has urged all users to change their passwords after discovering a data glitch.
