Box CEO Aaron Levie

Box CEO Aaron Levie is widely known for cracking jokes on Twitter. When Yahoo sued Facebook for patent infringement, for example, he tweeted, “Facebook is probably as disappointed as Yahoo that their technology may in any way be similar.”

But beyond the zingers, the 27-year-old Mercer Island High School grad also offers great insights into the entrepreneurial mindset. That’s one of the reasons we’re looking forward to having him join us for the concluding keynote conversation at Seattle 2.0 Startup Day, Sept. 22 at Bellevue’s Meydenbauer Center. (Tickets available here.)

As a preview, check out our compilation below for twelve of our favorite startup tweets by Levie over just the past few months.
