"For 99.99999 percent of the world, it's useless. It's meaningless. But for my mother, she loves it," says Dorsey

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey made quite an impression on "60 Minutes'" Lara Logan, who described him as a great philosopher of our day. Dorsey tells Logan that he views his start-ups, social media giant Twitter and electronic pay system Square, as movements.

But not everyone who uses Twitter is trying to start a revolution--part of the movement is the ability to enhance peoples' daily lives. "I am someone who tweets about what I have for breakfast, what I have for lunch, what I have for dinner," says Dorsey. "And for 99.99999 percent of the world, it's useless. It's meaningless. But for my mother, she loves it."
