TWiT.tv, which is the operating trade name of TWiT LLC, is a podcast (although TWiT uses the term netcast) network founded by technology broadcaster and author Leo Laporte and run by CEO Lisa Kentzell and News Director Mike Elgan. The network began operation in April 2005 with the launch of This Week in Tech. Security Now was the second podcast on the network, debuting in August of that year. Currently, the network hosts thirty podcasts and live streaming shows, covering various topics including Apple, Microsoft, Google, computer security, social networking, and current technology news.[1]

TWiT founder and owner Laporte, in an October 2009 speech, stated that it grosses revenues of $1.5 million per year, while costs are around $350,000.[2] Later on October 24, 2009, Laporte said during the TWiG (This Week in Google) show that revenues for the year would be closer to $2.5 million.[citation needed]

TWiT gets its name from its first and flagship podcast, This Week in Tech. The logo design originated from a traditional logic gate symbol of an "AND gate" turned on its side, the voiceovers are provided gratis by Jim Cutler.[3]
