It seems Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s Interim CEO, has been preceded in fame (or infamy?) by the one thing that has proven to be his biggest rival: his beard.
Dorsey and Dick Costolo appeared on CNBC this Friday to talk about the latter’s resignation as the CEO of Twitter, but all social media wanted to talk about were Dorsey’s luscious, manly chin-locks.
No hashtags for the Beard of the Day, true, but the topic trended on Twitter, and how. Let us count the ways.
Tweeps were already hailing the beard as its own personal entity…
Jack Dorsey’s beard deserves its own Twitter account.

If there’s a grain of truth in this, Twitter will see a lush future ahead of them.

However, his mom was one of the first who tweeted about it, and she was having none of it.
FYI… Not a fan of the beard. @jack has a great face. Like to see it.

What does Jack think? Sources have said he is still proudly wearing that glorious chin mantle, but other people say it’s high time it went the way of the hipster and saw a razor. We’re not entirely sure how he’ll take it, but we do know he’s quite the sartorial chameleon. Behold, a snapshot of his hair in his impetuous teen years:
