From a series of tweets I did earlier this week:

Pinterest, Instagram, Turntable, and Draw Something were all pivots. ~ @naval

Twitter and Groupon were the mother of all pivots.

Amazon, Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, Zynga, and Tumblr did not pivot. There's something to be said for conviction and courage of big vision.

Path and Square are two great examples of not pivoting. They have the courage to pursue big visions and their products keep getting better.

All benefited greatly from having patient investors.

Apple. Yahoo. eBay. Bungie.

More non-pivots.
