Former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo Now Consults on HBO’s  Silicon Valley

Mike Judge is ensuring the satirical nature of his show Silicon Valley hits as close to home as it possibly can.

Dick Costolo, who ran in the sort of tech circles that the show sends up on every episode, now has plot and story run by him for authenticity purposes at the Silicon Valley writers’ room. In a way, it’s as almost if he’s a Neil DeGrasse Tyson for the shows portrayal of tech corporate culture.

Just like people can’t believe the source material that Another Period is actually based on, we’re sure Costolo will also bring something that shows life is stranger and probably funnier than fiction.
