Biz Stone Is Leaving Twitter (AllTwitter)

Yet another Twitter co-founder is leaving the company. In a blog post penned Tuesday, Biz Stone has said that he will be leaving Twitter to work on other projects. Business Insider / Silicon Alley Insider: Before Twitter was an independent company, it was a side project at a startup called Odeo. Then Odeo cratered, and Odeo CEO Ev Williams created a new company, an incubator, Obvious. Twitter was the first project at Obvious. Eventually, Twitter outgrew Obvious and became its own company. CNET / Circuit Breaker: The Obvious Corp. will be run by Stone, Williams, and former Twitter product chief Jason Goldman. The trio will “develop new projects and work on solving big problems aligned along a simple mission statement: The Obvious Corp. develops systems that help people work together to improve the world.”
