Twitter CEO won't respond to pot-smoking allegations, too busy 'eating a giant bag of Doritos'

Dick Costolo jokes about case of the munchies

Entrepreneur Peter Thiel put Twitter's "mismanagement" as he saw it down to everyone at the company being high during a CNBC interview this week, and Twitter CEO Dick Costolo has responded in wonderfully sarcastic fashion.

"Twitter is hard to evaluate. They have a lot of potential. It’s a horribly mismanaged company—probably a lot of pot-smoking going on there," Facebook investor Thiel said of the rival company yesterday.

The allegation quickly spread around the internet and a Twitter employee eventually put it to their CEO, who jokingly replied: "Working my way through a giant bag of Doritos. I'll catch up with you later."

Thiel's weird reasoning is even more bizarre given he donated $70,000 to a marijuana legalisation campaign back in 2010.

This isn't actually the first time Twitter and weed have been in the news in the same headline, with Snoop Dogg previously lighting up a joint in their offices (of course he did, he did the very same in The White House).
