"No one is in control": Watch Stella Creasy MP's Twitter Talk

The Labour MP for Walthamstow Stella Creasy gave a speech at Twitter HQ about why we should be impatient to take control of our world.

One of our most well-known 2010-intake MPs outside of politics, a prolific tweeter, and Labour's vocal champion for Walthamstow, Stella Creasy, has given a speech at Twitter HQ. The talk, called "Impatience is a virtue", is her message to people about contributing to the future, expanding the possibilities of the individual in changing their world, and breaking down the barriers between us and who we assume to be in control. Her message was also to Twitter to be part of this engagement; to "evolve from being a place of small words to big actions".

It's worth a watch:
