In February of 2018, friends and business associates who follow Shervin Pishevar on Twitter witnessed some uncharacteristic behavior from him. He went on a tweeting rant that lasted for 21 hours.
Shervin Pishevar had been absent from Twitter for a few months prior to his noticeable return that day. He tweeted 50 times, and he switched from one topic to another throughout most of them. Shervin had recently stepped down from his leadership role at Investment company , a company that he had founded and led for several years. Shervin is an Iranian-American businessman and entrepreneur who has enjoyed a successful career in the field of investments. As a super angel investor, he has seeded over 60 startup companies. One of his most significant interests was in Uber, and he was an early investor in this organization. To date, he continues to play an advisory role for Uber, a ride share and transportation service company with its national headquarters in San Francisco. Shervin Pishevar has been a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley for many years.

Much of the Shervin Pishevar tweet storm was made up of grim predictions and warnings, and his timing for his forecasts would be toward the latter part of 2018. He said he foresees a shift happening in Silicon Valley as it is beginning to lose its competitive edge. He went on to rant about other topics, such as technology, globalization, immigration, the bond market, cryptocurrencies, the stock market, and the country’s economic outlook. Shervin prediction for the Bitcoin was that it would crash, and he expected it to drop by somewhere between $2,000 and $5,000 in value. He anticipated that the Bitcoin would begin to rebound in a 24 month period. Shervin Pishevar had a negative outlook for the stock market in late 2018. He warned investors to expect a drop in the Dow by approximately 6,000 points.
His tweet rant was erratic and at times difficult to decipher. It seems as if most people are still unsure, even more than one year later, exactly what caused his outburst on Twitter.
