In 2013, Twitter acquired Marakana, a company that became Twitter University.
The initial focus was on helping engineers go mobile. But a bigger problem was that engineers didn't understand how Twitter works.
The solution was to enable engineers to learn from one another. Twitter University came up with an app and a methodology for Peer Learning.
Soon, over 400 out of 2,000 Twitter engineers taught classes. This Peer Learning approach enabled people to have the right skills and do their best work.
Twitter University team launched PlusPlus to recreate similar success at other tech companies.
