Sept. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Twitter CEO Dick Costolo discusses his relationship with co-founder Jack Dorsey and the importance of user growth to the company. He spoke in a March 25 interview with Emily Chang on Bloomberg Television's "Bloomberg West." (Source: Bloomberg)

Jack is one of the most forthright communicators i have ever had the good fortune to work with.

I have been in a meeting with him where there was a difficult piece of news to be communicated , which he handled simply and elegantly in a high tension environment.

He is being humble about that.

It is the case i am much more of an extrovert and he is more of an introvert, but the two of us have a great relationship.

We have found the right way to work together.

What is more important to you, getting to one million -- one billion users or $1 billion in revenue?

Our user growth drives everything.

It's entirely in service to reach every person on the planet . all of the benefits of the business and growing the business and extending the platform are derived from that.

I think it is fair to say that -- we had a product meeting yesterday when people started laughing about this.

We were describing a new capability we wanted to deliver.

One of the product manager said, we think this will have a positive impact on revenue.

A couple of people started giggling.

Do not ever bring that into the meeting.

The idea is to deliver great user experiences.

We will figure out how to build the business if we are levering great user experiences.
