Every year, Salesforce runs a huge conference called Dreamforce in downtown San Francisco.
But to some people, the best part about Dreamforce is getting to see Salesforce’s lesser-known cofounder Parker Harris dressed in a funny costume during his keynote speech.
Because in recent years, Harris has been showing up in crazy costumes ranging from a superhero called “Lightning Man” to a scientist resembling Dr. Emmett Brown from “Back to the Future.”
But for some reason, Harris doesn’t seem to be in the mood for a costume at this year’s Dreamforce, says CEO Marc Benioff. So he’s asking his 260,000 Twitter followers to convince Harris to do it again this year – by sending him a personal email.

Einstein is the name of the next big product Salesforce is rolling out at this year’s Dreamforce. Not much is known about Einstein, but it’s supposed to be a product that uses artificial intelligence to make the software “smarter.”
Judging by the responses next to Benioff’s tweet, a lot of people are pushing for Harris to dress as Einstein.
What??? I’m drafting that email now!
